  • Please note that we have moved to our new location at the Jackson Avenue Center. When you enter the front doors of the JAC, head straight to the back where you see the red columns, and stop in at the reception window on your right. Let the receptionist know what you need, and she will contact someone in our office.

    Welcome to BGS!

    The Bachelor of General Studies is a cross-disciplinary degree program offered to maximize opportunities for individuals to reach personal goals, meet job requirements, and advance their careers.

    The degree was created in 2011 to meet the needs of undergraduates who wish to tailor their own degree program to meet their specific educational and career needs; non-traditional students whose work and family responsibilities constrain their ability to complete the requirements of other undergraduate degree programs offered by the University; and students who have accumulated many college credits, but discontinued their studies without completing a degree.

    Courses taken in fulfillment of BGS degree requirements are selected from the offerings of the College of Liberal Arts and the professional schools serving undergraduates at the University of Mississippi.
