Two New Concentrations Added to BIS

Expanding options for adults seeking a UVA degree part-time and online

August 9, 2017

The School's Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) has added two new concentrations to its adult degree completion program. Concentrations in health care management and information technology are now available, in addition to existing concentrations in business and the liberal arts.  Students also have the option to design an individualized concentration.  

Students selecting the Health Care Management Concentration (24 credits) will complete eight courses in health care management to include six required courses and two electives. This professionally-aligned concentration, which focuses in the health care field, allows students to develop foundational knowledge and skills in the key areas of health care systems and management. Students in the concentration are expected to complete their degree electives in non-health care management courses.

Students selecting the Information Technology (IT) Concentration (18 credits) will complete six courses in information technology to include five required courses and one elective. Students in the IT concentration are expected to complete their degree electives in non-IT courses.
