College of Professional Studies Announces Bachelor of Professional Studies in Interdisciplinary Studies
The College of Professional Studies at Syracuse University announces its most flexible degree program, a bachelor of professional studies (B.P.S.) in interdisciplinary studies.
The fully online B.P.S. in interdisciplinary studies is designed to combine knowledge and perspectives from multiple disciplines, allowing students to gain a well-rounded education and develop a diverse skill set. This program offers a blend of asynchronous and synchronous learning through eight-week courses for part-time learners with busy schedules aiming to develop their professional competency and practical skills.
“The B.P.S. in interdisciplinary studies is a unique program which allows students to combine career tracks in three different market-sensitive fields,” says Ryan Williams, associate dean of the College of Professional Studies. “This flexible approach builds on students’ varied interests and aims to prepare them for an increasingly interconnected workplace.”
A Personalized Educational Journey
With six start dates a year, the 120-credit undergraduate degree is fully online and offers students an immersive online classroom experience that is highly customizable, enabling students to tailor their educational experience to align with their specific interests, career goals and strengths.
The interdisciplinary studies degree will prepare students to tackle complex issues that cannot be solved using knowledge from a single field alone. Interdisciplinary studies students will develop knowledge and skills in a wide range of competencies and cognitive skills in three of the following disciplines:
- cannabis studies
- computer programming
- creative leadership
- cybersecurity administration
- healthcare administration
- knowledge management
- project management
Start Now Grant
The B.P.S. in interdisciplinary studies is eligible for the College of Professional Studies Start Now Grant.
Students that apply and get admitted in the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters are eligible to receive the Start Now Grant, which gives students $200 off their first 15 credits in an online undergraduate degree or certificate, an opportunity to save up to $3,000.
