New opportunities are opening for adults who have a college education, an unfinished university degree, and even unfulfilled dreams of someday beginning and attaining a degree. The Bachelor of Integrated Studies at the University of Prince Edward Island places the unique needs of adult learners in focus, with a distinct entry point, ongoing learner supports, a broad choice of courses to meet employment requirements and personal interests, and a faculty noted for its strength in teaching.

The structure is flexible while ensuring that students receive both depth and breadth of knowledge within their studies. The student achieves depth through choosing a concentration of at least eight (8) courses in an area of interest. The student achieves breadth through the completion of a required core of basic courses, and by pursuing a diversity of offerings to satisfy personal intellectual curiosity and career interests.
