Individuals who are able to see the big picture, make new connections, and work between disciplines and professions are needed as we navigate complex social and environmental issues.

The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (BAIS) program allows you to combine courses in professional communication, environmental practice, justice studies, and business to create a unique degree that aligns with your personal and professional goals and supports you to become a changemaker in your community.

Join us on March 2 for a webinar about this highly customizable program. Hosted by program head and professor, Dr. Shelley Jones, this session will provide you with information about the program, application requirements, RRU student path, as well as an opportunity to ask questions.

New RRU graduates Taylar Bouwmeester & Elishia Gardiner will be attending the session to share their experience.
