As a General Studies student, you’ll try a wide range of disciplines and discover possibilities for your future. General Studies is a great option when you know you want a university degree and you’re continuing to explore what path you want to specialize in, or if you’re headed for professional studies like education or law. Develop the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that employers seek by doing research projects, writing, and presentations. Learn from experienced teachers and researchers and connect with them and your classmates as you grow personally and academically.
So here's the deal:
Take five courses per semester for three years, and you'll complete your General Studies degree
[courses are worth 3 credits and 3 x 5 x 2 x 3 = 90 credits].
This degree is a concentration -- it's one year shorter than a standard Bachelor of Arts.
Here's a sampling of the jobs our alumni have landed with this degree or entered through further studies:

To enhance the things you’re learning in the classroom, you can take advantage of the many travel study opportunities offered by other programs.
