What is Integrated Studies?
The Integrated Studies program at Utah Tech University provides the opportunity for students to earn a bachelor’s degree unique from traditional, discipline-specific programs. Students select two emphasis areas from a list of 30 and combine their requirements to create a custom degree, specifically tailored to the learner.
Students have the flexibility of developing a program of study that will uniquely suit their personal and professional goals. It presents the advantages of a liberal arts degree while allowing students to explore relationships between two academic or professional fields. This approach enables students not only to assume greater responsibility and ownership of their education, but also to gain knowledge and skills personalized to a specific career or professional pursuit by expanding their training beyond a traditional curriculum.
A successful Integrated Studies program will produce a student who understands that learning is interdisciplinary and integrative in nature and who can identify significant connections between disciplines and incorporate them into their education, work, and life.
