Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies - Interior Design

The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary (BIS) is an interdisciplinary degree that allows you to select three areas or emphases and develop a contract of courses
with the departments of your choice. A final capstone project is required, which brings together the three areas of emphases.

For an interior design emphasis, a minimum of 24 credit hours are required as approved by the interior design BIS advisor. 

You must have an interview with the BIS program coordinator to enroll.

Call 801-626-7713 to talk with the BIS secretary and schedule an appointment.
