Complete with a Distributed Studies Degree

The College of Arts & Sciences, in partnership with the Division of Continuing Education, offers a Distributed Studies major at CU Boulder. This interdisciplinary major allows former CU students—who left the university in good academic standing—to complete their bachelor’s degree through online, evening, and/or daytime courses.

The major is designed to allow students to complete a set of required courses from diverse disciplines within the divisions of Arts and Humanities, Natural Science, or Social Science. For example, a student who has completed several courses in Arts and Humanities (e.g. Philosophy, History, or Theater) and specifically within one department, such as History, would be an excellent candidate for a Bachelor of Arts in Distributed Studies in Arts & Humanities with an emphasis in History.

Talk to a CU Complete advisor if you are interested in this degree completion option.
