Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies

Designed to accommodate the unique circumstances and needs of adult, transfer and military students, the Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies Degree:

  • Offers over 45 areas of study and affords maximum flexibility of course selection and degree design. Students may choose courses and areas of study to meet individual career goals or requirements, prepare for graduate study, or satisfy personal interests and aspirations.
  • Supports student success through professional, personalized academic advising services.
  • Offers an academic amnesty policy. This policy gives eligible students the opportunity to improve their University of Nebraska system grade point average. 
  • Permits students to complete degree requirements of the UNO Catalog under which they entered the Division of Continuing Studies, allowing unforeseen interruption of studies without changes in degree requirements.
  • Supports the geographic mobility through its residency policy and extensive array of course options. Students can take classes online, on campus, or at off-campus locations, including Offutt Air Force Base.
  • Allows liberal acceptance of academic transfer credit from regionally accredited post-secondary institutions.
  • Maintains its origins as a military/veteran-friendly degree and awards credit for military experience and education.
  • Includes credit by examination provisions, enabling students to establish academic credit for acquired knowledge (e.g. CLEP, DSST).
  • Features credit-granting policies for approved formal learning experiences obtained outside the college/university classroom (non-traditional credit).

To learn more about the Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies Degree, visit or schedule a meeting with an academic advisor at one of our two division of Continuing Studies locations:  

Admission Requirements

  • Students must be 21 years of age to be admitted into the Division of Continuing Studies.
    Exceptions to this rule include military students; students who are “holding” for their preferred UNO academic degree/department/college, usually for the purpose of raising their grade point average; and students pursuing an area of concentration that is not represented by a UNO Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.
  • Students must submit a high school transcript. Adults who have not completed high school must complete the high school equivalency examination (GED).
  • ACT or SAT scores are not required.
  • Active duty military personnel may be admitted prior to reaching age 21; however, military students under age 21 must submit high school transcripts and either an ACT or SAT score.
  • College/university-level courses completed with a grade of C- or better are usually accepted from regionally accredited colleges and universities. A maximum of 64 semester hours is accepted from two-year institutions such as community colleges.

Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies Requirements

A minimum of 120 credit hours is required for a Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies. 24 of the last 48 hours must be University of Nebraska at Omaha courses.

To obtain a BMS, a student must fulfill the university, college, and program requirements. Grades of C- or better are required in the University General Education courses and in the Area of Concentration (Concentration Required) and Areas of Emphasis (Concentration Not Required).

TOTAL HOURS (MINIMUM): 120

Concentration Required:

  • 40 to 46 hours of University General Education courses
  • At least 30 hours in the Area of Concentration
    • Some Areas of Concentration have more than 30 hours
    • At least 9 hours must be Upper Division completed at UNO
  • 12 hours in Secondary Field #1
  • 12 hours in Secondary Field #2
  • Elective hours as needed to reach 120 total credit hours
  • At least 30 hours must be Upper Division

Concentration Not Required:

  • 40 to 46 hours of University General Education courses
  • 15 hours in Area of Emphasis #1
    • At least 6 hours must be Upper Division completed at UNO
  • 15 hours in Area of Emphasis #2
    • At least 6 hours must be Upper Division completed at UNO
  • 15 hours in Area of Emphasis #3
  • Elective hours as needed to reach 120 total credit hours

Credit for Prior Learning

The Division of Continuing Studies awards credit for prior learning and formal training experiences evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the Board of Regents of the State of New York System (PONSI) and/or approved by the Division’s Faculty Academic Policy Committee (FAPC). A maximum of 65 hours from non-traditional sources can be used in the Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies Degree.

The Division of Continuing Studies does not offer portfolio or non-portfolio evaluation of students’ life experiences. The Division and the FAPC rely on expert opinion to evaluate standardized training and examinations and believe that such a policy upholds the quality, integrity, and standards of the BMS Degree. When appropriate, students may be encouraged to test for credit in areas they believe they are knowledgeable.

Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies Degree Areas of Concentration

The curriculum of each BMS Area of Concentration is determined by the faculty of the respective academic department. Area of Concentration curricular revisions are at the discretion of the academic department.
