Program Overview

Some students don’t want a traditional Bachelor program, and would rather seek a unique and personalized approach to higher education. The Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies degree program (IDS) from King University is a great option for busy students to pursue such a path. This bachelor’s degree provides flexibility and support for hard-working students with hectic schedules and bustling lives. A Presbyterian institution based in Bristol, Tennessee, King University gives its graduates a strong basis to aid them in entering the job market or going on to further their education. In this bachelor’s program, students are able to focus on their own specific knowledge, interests, and strengths, taking courses across different disciplines to create a specialized plan. Since this isn’t a traditional major program, students must meet with an advisor and a Student Support Specialist to outline educational and career goals, as well as a plan of study.

As with other Bachelor programs at King University, the BS in Interdisciplinary studies requires the completion of 48 credit hours, supplementing the total of 124 credit hours required to graduate from King University; 24 credits are devoted to a primary discipline, and the remaining 24 to one or more secondary disciplines. Unlike other majors, the IDS program has no set curriculum. Instead, students must meet with an IDS Program Coordinator, academic advisor, and/or a Student Support Specialist to outline educational and career goals, as well as a plan of study.
