Tyler Pettigrew decided that he needed an undergraduate degree that would prepare him equally well for preaching or teaching. He also decided that he wanted to learn about religions, Biblical Hebrew, anthropology, culture and change. And he decided the University of Cincinnati was where he wanted to earn this degree.

The interdisciplinary studies program within the McMicken College of Arts & Sciences offered Tyler exactly what he needed. "It's a misconception that the B.I.S. is thrown together," says Tyler. "It actually requires more work, more thought." Tyler took the college requirements, the departmental requirements, the requirements for a minor in Judaic Studies and added coursework in philosophy, anthropology, sociology and history. He calls his individualized program focusing on monotheisms "Religion, Culture and Change."
