Program Overview

The Bachelor of University Studies degree is an excellent option for students seeking a broad-based educational experience. This program offers flexible course scheduling including online classes and particularly may help students with prior credits to complete their degree. Students who have accumulated a variety of course credits that are not easily applied to a particular degree program often find that they can be used in this program, allowing them to graduate earlier at reduced costs. Academic credit might also be available for previous military experience or certifications. The degree is interdisciplinary and not intended for training for one vocation. However, some pre-planned areas of emphasis are offered (Communication Studies, Health and Human Performance, Leadership Studies), or students may design their own with an advisor's approval. Here are some potential occupational pathways, which include some positions held by MTSU graduates with this degree: Aircraft quality engineer; Analyst for Homeland Security; Bank vice president; Child protective services investigator; Contract specialist; Corporate trainer; Customer service specialist; High school achievement gap intervention; specialist; High school teacher; Lawyer; Lead patient service representative; Manager; Marketing manager; National Guard helicopter pilot; Newspaper sports editor; Nuclear safety engineer; Sales representative; Social services worker; Software quality engineer; and Support staffer.
