Welcome to the Bachelor of Specialized Studies
degree at Ohio University
Among the students for whom the BSS may
be an appropriate option are those:
- who want to combine course offerings in different academic departments to create a unique field of study not currently available in established degree programs.
- whose intellectual interests are not realized through an existing degree program.
- who want to explore areas of study across several colleges.
- who wish to pursue study for a specific career, but in a non-traditional manner.
- who have previously completed an associate's degree and wish to earn a baccalaureate degree that is a reasonable fit with their earlier academic work.
- who wish to earn an OU degree through distance education.
If you are a student for whom one or more of the above descriptions apply, meet with a University College, External Student Program, or regional campus advisor to discuss designing a BSS program.
