The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) major requires students integrate two or more specific disciplines into a customized program of study, which is then linked together by a common core of classes designed to help students synthesize and communicate the relevance of the integration. Specific numbers of credits are prescribed in each of the disciplines used for the program of study and course substitution is not allowed within the common core. The BIS degree has a program administrator who approves proposed programs of study.
Southern Utah University (SUU), in partnership with Upper Limit Aviation (ULA), offers The B.I.S. Professional Pilot Program [PPP]. The program is designed to prepare students for rewarding careers within the aviation industry by combining one of the three following areas of emphasis.
The SUU-ULA flight training program has two emphases: Rotor-Wing (i.e. helicopter) Pilot and Fixed Wing (conventional airplane) Pilot. These tracks share a common core of both general education and general aviation courses. The program is structured within FAA Part 141 regulations and combines flight training, technical and professional aviation courses, The program offers two concentrations, one for Fixed-Wing [Airplanes] with a choice of Single Engine Land [SEL] and Multi-Engine Land [MEL], and one for Rotor-Wing [Helicopters].
