Individualized Studies BA (BAIS)

The Bachelor of Arts in Individualized Studies degree is a baccalaureate degree program structured to meet the educational needs of adult learners. It provides nontraditional students with a variety of options in meeting University requirements for an undergraduate degree grounded in the liberal arts. It recognizes the value of life/work experience and affords students the opportunity to receive advanced standing through portfolio assessment. Students may choose to pursue a single area of study in depth or design a program of study by combining liberal arts courses with career-related concentrations. The result is a degree program that will be immediately appealing to mature adults who bring to FDU traditional course work completed over a period of years at a number of institutions, a history of work and life experiences that can be equated with credit-bearing courses, and the desire, commitment and self-discipline to complete the degree requirements.
