Bachelor of University Studies (BUS)
The Bachelor of University Studies (BUS) is an interdisciplinary degree designed for students whose educational and career goals are not addressed by traditional degree programs offered at Idaho State University. Formal application to the BUS program requires completion of a minimum of 24 semester hours, a 2.5 cumulative GPA, and an application packet that includes a statement of educational and career goals, a rationale for an individualized program of study, and a proposed selection of courses to meet stated goals. The BUS Committee will review and approve all applications. Once the BUS Committee grants approval for admission to candidacy, an advisory committee is appointed to assist the student in refining a program of study. Completion of a Senior Capstone Project, course US 4490, a BUS Committee interview, and achievement of a 2.5 cumulative GPA are required for graduation. The BUS degree requires careful and thoughtful planning. At least 24 semester credit hours (including 16 upper division hours) in a student's approved program of study must be taken after the semester in which admission to BUS was approved.
