Have you ever wanted to finish your undergraduate degree but never had the opportunity?
Some students have jobs, families, or other reasons that prevent them from completing a four-year degree on a university campus. With the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) degree program, you can earn the final years of your degree at Mississippi State University completely online.
Complete your freshman and/or sophomore year requirements through MSU online, at an accredited community college, or at any other accredited four-year institution. Students may transfer up to 61 hours of community college course work to MSU.
“I was hired at PACCAR in March 2011 and discovered different opportunities to grow within the company. The only thing that was lacking was a degree. When I looked into it and saw the interdisciplinary studies program Mississippi State was offering online, it was intriguing. I could do all my coursework and continue to work. Once I started, I never felt like I was out there by myself – I could always reach out to all my instructors. It made me feel like I was a part of the family. On graduation day, my son told me he’s going to graduate from Mississippi State just like his dad, and it made me proud! Before I had the degree, I was limited in the choices I had and promotions I could apply for. Once I got the degree, it meant that I had options.”
