Julie Cohara, Director of Degree Programs
The Prespecialized Studies program designates students who intend to declare the Bachelor of Specialized Studies program major code (BS1112) , but who have not yet satisfied the admissions requirements. The Bachelor of Specialized Studies program affords undergraduate students at Ohio University the opportunity to design a degree program that is uniquely their own. Students work with faculty and staff to create an area of concentration, which stands as the equivalent of an established major. The program permits you to combine available curricula to create a unique field of study.
No requirements beyond University admission requirements. Once enrolled, students must register and attend an information session (offered regularly each term) to receive the link to declare this pre-major code and receive an application to the program. Students are officially admitted to the program once a proposed individualized major program of study has been approved.
Change of Program Policy
No selective or limited admission requirements.
External Transfer Admission
No requirements beyond University admission requirements.
Opportunities Upon Graduation
Students will not graduate with the Prespecialized Studies major code. Rather this pre-major code will designate students who intend to declare the well-established Bachelor of Specialized major but have not completed the admissions requirements.
