Integrative Studies majors complete all the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, including 120 semester hours (at least 30 must be taken at UNT), 42 advanced semester hours (24 advanced must be taken at UNT), all General University Requirements and all University Core and College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences requirements. Instead of the usual major/minor format, Integrative Studies majors choose three self-selected fields of study.

The three self-selected fields are designed to ensure a broad range of academic endeavors consistent with the overall philosophy underlying a major in Integrative Studies.

Marketable skills for this degree include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas, that are valued by employers, and are primary or complementary to the major. The marketable skills goal was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers. UNT's marketable skills were faculty-developed and approved by employers or discipline-specific agencies, e.g., internship providers, chambers of commerce, workforce development boards, and other workforce-related entities. For information on these marketable skills - https://vpaa.unt.edu/thecb/class.
