  • WE HAVE MOVED!
    The Office of General Studies has moved to a new location in the Jackson Avenue Center. We are now in Suite K of JAC Central. Enter the Jackson Avenue Center through the main entrance that used to lead into the Ole Miss Bookstore and go straight back to the hallway and look for the door on your left marked 113. Enter through 113 and take an immediate right, where you will see our new suite, marked Suite K.

    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.
