University Studies Program

Welcome to the University Studies program at East Carolina University!

Through the Bachelor of Science in University Studies, students have the opportunity to follow a non-traditional path towards degree completion.  By designing their own degree plan, students can complete a degree that is personally interesting and professionally relevant-but not available through a traditional university major.  Our students receive faculty assistance while designing their own degree plan and each student’s plan must be approved by our Faculty Oversight Committee to ensure academic rigor and non-replication of an existing major.  This program is perfect for students with a higher number of completed credit hours who need a degree that can be tailored to their desires, completed online or on campus, and accepting of accumulated credit hours.  Feel free to contact us if you’d like to learn more!
