What will I learn?

The Bachelors of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) is a unique degree program that offers you the opportunity to create their own major. Interdisciplinary Studies students learn from multiple disciplines and gain knowledge, methods, and theories that enhance your individual educational and career goals.

Interdisciplinary Nursing Preparation is a partnership between Cincinnati Arts and Sciences and Cincinnati College of Nursing. It was created as a direct response to the demand for universities and training programs to expand interdisciplinary educational opportunities and programs to help foster collaboration among students before they enter the health workforce. Through this program, you will get expert advising, additional nursing courses and an interdisciplinary experience that prepares you to apply to the Accelerated Direct-Entry Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program, designed specifically for students who hold a bachelor’s degree and want to be an RN.

Students should be advised that they will not hold a degree in nursing by earning this degree alone.

Success

You can be successful in Interdisciplinary Studies if you are highly motivated, goal-oriented and enjoy working independently. Interdisciplinary Studies students have the organizational skills and vision to translate a career or personal goal into a solid academic plan that is broadly based and delves into several areas of knowledge.
