The Bachelor of General Studies Degree (BGS) was ranked #11 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report's 2013 Edition of Best Online Bachelor's Degree Programs. Over 1,200 students are enrolled in the Bachelor of General Studies Degree Program at UNO and enrollment is expected to increase as nationally, the number of adult learners going or returning to college increases.
The degree has its roots in the 1940's when the U.S. Government initiated Operation Bootstrap to help transition those who served in World War II for post-military careers. UNO has educated active military and veteran students who served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, Bosnia, Kosovo, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, among others since the BGS formed.
