B.I.S. In Public And Non-Profit Administration

The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in Public and Non‑Profit Administration prepares graduates for a variety of careers in local, state, and national government and a variety of not‑for‑profit organizations, like social service agencies, hospitals, schools, religious organizations, and philanthropic foundations. This major gives students an overall understanding of the organization and administration of public and non‑profit organizations and their relations with other local, state, national, and international entities. Beyond this foundation, students may craft a specialization to fit their future career goals or  choose to receive training in one of four pre‑set areas of specialization: Allied Health Administration, Financial Administration, Public Management, or Substance Abuse.  The program of study for the BIS in Public and Non‑Profit Administration consists of four components: General Education Requirements (44 hours); Core Requirements (30 hours); Track Requirements (16 to 18 hours); and Electives* (28 to 30 hours).
