Online Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies

Use your previous credits. Choose three concentrations. Do it all 100% online with UTEP’s unique and flexible program.

Finish Your Degree. And Personalize It—100% Online.

Welcome to one of the most popular online programs at UTEP. The Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies is an incredibly flexible degree that helps you make the most out of your previously earned credits while targeting your interests.

Instead of a single major, you’ll choose three concentrations to create a degree that truly fits your needs. And the possibilities are endless. For instance, you could combine Cultural Studies, Health and Well-being and Social Sciences to open up career opportunities across those disciplines.

This versatility also means that you’ll easily be able to take advantage of credits you’ve earned at other institutions, even if they’re from many years ago. As a result, you’ll have a degree that’s flexible in so many ways—in terms of your curriculum, when and where you study (fully online) and, of course, the diverse faculty members and students you’ll meet.

In this one-of-a-kind degree, your classmates could be active-duty or military-affiliated students in Germany and the Middle East, or professionals, business owners and parents.

“When I discovered (UTEP Connect) I knew this would be the program that would allow for me to run my business, be the mom I want to be and earn a bachelor’s degree.”

Javier Mateos

“I originally attended UTEP in 2006 to pursue a history major but unfortunately, I had to drop out in 2008 due to a family emergency. UTEP Connect was the perfect option for me to go back to school and finish a degree that would allow me to continue my education. … In my opinion, a Multidisciplinary Studies major is perfect if you wish to continue your education, because it has a wide range of fields of study to choose from for graduate school.”

Holly McDonald

“I used to think I wasn’t your typical college student, but I’m beginning to think that middle-aged students are the new normal! I’m a wife, a mom to 2 kids and a full-time employee. I started and stopped college a few times in my teens and early twenties. … I have experience and knowledge that I didn’t have in my twenties, so I feel like I had a richer learning experience than ever before.”
