  • Based upon my future career path (as outlined on Slide 4), I chose the Bachelor of Studies degree with three areas of concentration – English, Business and Sociology. This degree plan allowed me to choose the coursework that I felt would prove most beneficial to me on my chosen career path. Most importantly, the BCGS program allowed me to integrate each of the applicable disciplines and develop a versatile knowledge base, thus making me more marketable in this rapidly changing world and market. I would agree that there are some career paths that do require specialization of knowledge; however, many business sectors, (particularly nonprofits), demand constant adjustments, the ability to multi-task and wear multiple ‘hats’ (so-to-speak).
