Bachelor of General Studies

The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) is an interdisciplinary degree that allows students to enhance personal goals by connecting three Texas State minors, two General Studies courses and appropriate supporting courses.

Students who are challenged by choosing one major can find 69 minor options. The BGS degree may also be ideal for students who have invested a large number of hours in another degree but wish to change academic goals.
