Integrative Studies

Most dual admission students prefer to take the Miami University classes at the Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester, Ohio because of its close proximity to Sinclair’s Courseview Campus Center.

The BIS concentrations fully offered at the Voice of America Learning Center include:

  • Families, Gender & Society
    designed to provide students with an interdisciplinary view of family life in contemporary times, preparing students to work or to advance in careers requiring work with families, children, teens and the elderly
  • Organizational Leadership
    designed for individuals working in any number of occupations in profit and non-profit sectors who want a four-year degree indicative of their ability to advance within the organization and lead or supervise others

However, dual admission students are not restricted to only those program concentrations. After Sinclair completion, students may choose to complete any of Miami University’s Bachelor of Integrative Studies concentrations.
