Bachelor of General Studies

Designed for students whose academic interests or career objectives require an individualized approach, the general studies program provides an interdisciplinary degree that facilitates study across academic disciplines and professional fields.

Prospective General Studies students

The General Studies program must be carefully constructed and is intended for those students whose academic or career interests fall outside of the scope of existing majors at the University of Nevada, Reno.  As such, students considering a degree in General Studies must meet with an academic advisor in the Exploratory and Pre-Professional Advising Center to discuss whether the degree is appropriate for their academic and career aspirations.  Only after meeting with an academic advisor will a student be able to declare the General Studies degree. 

Current General Studies students

Students who are already declared in the Bachelor of General Studies degree can find helpful information and resources for the program by going to the General Catalog and reviewing the program requirements for their catalog year.
