Undergraduate Programs BAIS

Bachelor of Arts in Individualized Studies


The Bachelor of Arts in Individualized Studies (BAIS) is offered through the University’s Petrocelli College of Continuing Studies, which features programs for adults and working professionals. The degree is aimed at students who are interested in combining business theory with technological skills that are vital in today’s workplace. Students find that their course work has an intense practical orientation. They are able to apply the skills they learn immediately in their day-to-day working lives.

The program’s goal is to increase the student’s understanding of communication, management, applied technology and business in the world economy. Students in the program develop expertise that has proved invaluable in a wide range of settings, including local, national and international corporations. Expertise gained from the program is also invaluable in the public sector and the not-for-profit world.

The BAIS degree is ideally suited to employed adult learners who have already earned some college credit. FDU will accept up to 90 credits, of the 120 required for the degree, from other sources. (See Advance Standing.) Students who receive the full 90 credits may complete the degree in as little as 18 months.

The program is designed as a timely and cost efficient vehicle to enable adult learners to complete their undergraduate degrees. Classes are organized in 10 week terms, beginning in September, January, April and June.
