When you stop and think about it, a bachelor’s degree in, well just about anything, is pretty much a one size fits all exercise.  Students take the same classes from the same instructors and take the same exams. But that could be changing. So after talking about degrees in Homeland Security and Gaming in the past two weeks, today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about a new customizable business degree program.

We’ll also talk about big data…it’s everywhere.

And we’ll spend an academic minute with the story of the only female governor in the US to die in office.

Siena College has taken the wraps off a new bachelor's degree in nursing program.

Now, scientists from around the country are launching a new project that hopes to expand our understanding just what the heck that is!

Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll talk to one of the researchers chosen to participate in the DESI Project.

We’ll also keep it dark by spending an academic minute learning a little more about Dark Matter.
