“The BDPs are the most supporting, structured, and above all, rewarding when it comes to making undergraduate academics an in-depth experience, an experience that will not only help you expand your horizons, but will add value to your degree.”
With 19 credit hours of coursework and connecting experiences, students may earn a BDP certificate in Cultural Studies. For a complete list of courses and requirements:
download the Cultural Studies BDP curriculum sheet (PDF).
BDP advisors assist students in finding meaningful connecting research and/or internship experiences related to Cultural Studies.
3-4 page essay written at the end of the BDP experience, drawing together the different pieces of the BDP.
Courses counting toward a BDP in Cultural Studies may also satisfy core, major, and elective requirements in a student’s degree plan. With planning, the BDP should not add time to students’ UT careers, but instead helps students choose the courses they already have to take in an integrated way.
