The mission of the Bachelor of Arts degree completion program in Interdisciplinary Studies is to provide a two-year upper-division liberal arts education for social change using integrative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative learning approaches. We co-create learning environments that reflect values of equity and justice; that recognize the unique perspectives and lived experiences of each participant as sources of knowledge; that build collective and community-based knowledge; that challenge oppressive assumptions and structures; and that expose participants to new ways of thinking, through contact with new knowledge, belief systems, theories and community practices.
The Bachelor's Degree Completion Program at CIIS offers you:
• the opportunity to complete your Bachelor's degree within two years. The high graduation rates of students, combined with a guaranteed access to courses required for graduation and fixed tuition rate, allow you to save time and money.
• a collaborative learning community which honors your life experiences, fosters relationship building, and engages in multiple modes of learning.
• a weekend and hybrid online format that enables you to integrate the demands of work and family with your education.

An online learning space ensures that learning, collaboration, and discussions continue in-between the class weekends.
