Bachelor of Arts in General Studies

Reaching Out

You may notice a WIU vehicle near you in the next few months! Bachelor of Arts in General Studies Degree (BGS) program advisors will be busy visiting community colleges throughout the state to attend adult transfer fairs and community college fairs to get the word out about the BGS degree. The BGS program currently has 1432   active students and since its inception the program has graduated over 8,000 students. For more information on the BGS program visit our website. In addition, a team of advisors and administrators from WIU, including the BGS academic advisors, have been preparing for the advising external review later this month by conducting an Advising Self-Study. The purpose of the self-assessment is “to gain informed perspectives on the strengths and deficiencies of their programs and services and plans for improvements.” An external reviewer will be on campus later this month to meet with various advising constituencies.
