The Baylor Interdisciplinary Core (BIC) is one of the programs in the Honors College at Baylor University. It offers Baylor students the opportunity to receive credit for general studies requirements by completing a challenging and diverse curriculum. The BIC curriculum focuses on primary texts, student-professor interaction, and a community of learners.
The BIC is a unique, alternative way for students to explore Baylor’s core curriculum. Instead of taking the University’s traditional general education requirements (separate classes in English, history, religion, philosophy, and political science, for example), BIC students learn about these subjects through integrated coursework and active learning components, studying how these subjects intersect and influence the development of the world’s cultures.
