Bachelor of Science in Science & Technology Multidisciplinary Studies - 100% Online

The Bachelor of Science in Science and Technology Multidisciplinary Studies offers students a means to design their program of study that reflects current business, industry, government, education/training development and technology needs, and/or they can meet those unique requirements by building a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) multidisciplinary skill set within the program studies.

The designing of their program of study will enable students to build a unique skill set that can focus on two or more distinct programs. Focusing on two or more programs is integrated around a unifying theme or topic that cannot be subsumed under a single discipline or occupational field or a perception not currently available through established majors/minors, thus allowing them to tailor their program of study to their own personal/professional interests, needs or occupational employment demands/projections.

Courses are offered each semester via online delivery and this program can be completed 100% online.

This type of degree completion program allows students to enjoy greater job security and career flexibility, while employers will have a more adaptable multi-skilled and educated workforce that is desired for the new and ever-changing economy.
