So much support, you may forget you’re studying online.
As a BIPS student, you’ll be online, but not on your own.
Designed with working professionals in mind, UNC Greensboro’s B.S. in Integrated Professional Studies (BIPS) is an online program that develops relevant, in-demand skills. BIPS is serious about your success. Here’s how the program can support you on your path to graduation.
Dedicated BIPS advising team
Once you’re admitted, you’ll meet your BIPS advisor, who will check in with you throughout the program to help you stay on track. BIPS advisors wear many hats, such as:
- Partnering with you to chart a clear, customized path to graduation
- Offering guidance on course selection
- Coaching you through your transition back to college, especially if it’s been awhile since you took courses
- Sharing information that helps you understand the program and what’s expected of you
- Connecting you with university offices and support services as needed
First-rate faculty and courses
BIPS courses are developed by faculty who are subject matter experts in their fields. They work with UNCG Online’s instructional technologists to develop courses that are engaging and interactive. Instructors use a variety of online tools to personalize the learning experience, such as video, audio, graphics, ebooks, case studies, discussion boards, and interactive activities.
You can also expect a lot of feedback from BIPS faculty. Because most courses are project-based, you’ll get feedback on your assignments and progress throughout the course. Your instructor might send you a video, chat with you on Zoom, send you an email, or post messages for you in Canvas. Instructors hold virtual office hours to answer questions as well.
Outstanding resources for online students
UNCG is no stranger to online students. About 43 percent of UNCG’s 20,000 students take at least some online courses, and the university is well equipped to support them. As a BIPS student, you’ll have access to university resources such as these:
- University Libraries
- The Online Writing Center
- Online consultations with the University Speaking Center and the Digital ACT Studio
- Online tutoring
- Career services
