Mason's Bachelor of Individualized Study (BIS) program is a degree completion program for adult learners. BIS offers students generous transfer credit options and a distinctive educational opportunity to integrate other college-level learning, such as professional credentials and military experience, into university coursework credits. Students create interdisciplinary concentrations to meet their own educational needs for professional advancement, career change, preparation for graduate school, and personal satisfaction.
BIS is designed to meet the needs of adults. The flexibility of the program, the pace of coursework, and the time to complete are individually tailored to each student's situation. Our advisors and faculty are committed to your success in earning an undergraduate degree.
