Bachelor of General Studies Degree

The Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) is an undergraduate liberal arts degree available through the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at Fort Hays State University. The degree provides maximum flexibility for students who have well-defined career objectives and wish to determine the content of their degree rather than pursue one of the established majors at FHSU. The program includes general education requirements and an area of concentration but not a specific major.

The Bachelor of General Studies is a general degree that can be used for entry into a wide variety of occupations. The BGS degree serves as a bridge to numerous graduate degree programs and prepares students for employment in areas not requiring specific baccalaureate degrees. The area of emphasis or concentration can be tailored to prepare students for entry into a particular career area. Concentrations that can be accessed electronically through the Virtual College include, but are not limited to, General Business, Human Services, Justice Studies, Information Networking and Telecommunications, Organizational Leadership, and Gerontology. Individual programs must be approved by an advisor designated by the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

The degree is available on campus or can be accessed electronically by off-campus students.
