Graduates of the program have entered diverse career fields, such as:

  • Administration
  • Banking
  • Counseling

This major can also prepare you to enter a professional school or a graduate program. The Integrative Studies major is appealing to transfer students because it utilizes as many of the credits from other institutions as possible.

What we offer

The Integrative Studies major empowers you to create a major that best suits your interests and enhances your career objectives. For example, you may prepare for a career in international business by taking foreign language, anthropology and business courses.

You can choose from a wide variety of courses offered by various departments across campus. As a result, you learn new perspectives based on a professor's research and experiences.

Our new focus in Strategic Corporate Communication provides you a structured way to combine Communication Studies, Journalism, Management and Technical Communication to gain a competitive edge in this market. Offered through the University of North Texas New College at Frisco, UNT's new off-site instructional facility, the Strategic Corporate Communication program will help you master communication strategy for all platforms. The program has courses that range from business communication to public relations to social media. You'll have the opportunity to do an internship in the industry, and you'll be able to earn an academic certificate in Technical Writing and/or Digital Media along with your degree.

Many of our undergraduate programs are nationally recognized by various accrediting agencies and organizations, meaning you'll receive a quality education.

Our curriculum strengthens your skills in communication, critical thinking and analysis, investigating and problem solving, managing tasks and relating to others. These skills are key when starting a career.

Friendly professors are ready to help you when needed. Many of them are recognized experts in their fields and have earned numerous teaching and research accolades.

Internships for academic credit also are available. An internship course has been designed specifically for students in this major. If you're taking political science courses, for example, you may work for a government agency in Washington, D.C. You may write for our student newspaper or a community newspaper in the Dallas-Fort Worth area if you're studying journalism. If you're enrolled in science courses, you may work on a professor's research project or your own research project in one of the university's research centers and institutes.

At least one area must be in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and the other two areas can be from the other colleges and schools across campus.
