From my BIS class

What is BIS?? (this is not a sales pitch, you need to know how to explain your program to potential employers)
-ASU’s BIS program is one of the TOP 5 IDS programs in the US. BIS (Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies) is a university-wide program intended for the student who has academic interests that might not be satisfied within existing disciplinary fields. BIS students create specialized interdisciplinary degrees to prepare themselves for careers in a world that increasingly bridges academic disciplines. Students choose two concentration areas (or one double concentration) representing academic interests they wish to integrate. BIS students also complete four core courses to acquire the intellectual tools needed to identify connections between their academic interests and engage in interdisciplinary problem solving.
