BIS 401 Experience

In the BIS 401 Experience you will arrange, plan and execute your own learning project. Whether you choose to do Applied Study or Directed Study, your experience will integrate both of your chosen interdisciplinary academic concentrations in a meaningful way. During the experience, you’ll be guided in doing interdisciplinary application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
