General Studies

General Studies is an interdisciplinary degree that enables you to explore courses and programs without the obligation to fulfill a specific major's requirements. Instead, the program allows you to customize your program based on your interests and career plans. You will explore a broad range of subjects - from business, health care, and computer science, to engineering, criminal justice, and behavioral science.

As a result of this broad, personalized study, you will develop diverse skill sets. The degree signifies to employers that you are a highly capable, well-rounded individual who can accomplish complex tasks independently and as part of a team. With a degree grounded in the liberal arts, you'll also bring valuable oral and written communication skills, critical thinking abilities, and computer skills.

Flexible scheduling options - including online and blended learning, as well as day and evening classes - provide convenience and the ability to earn your associate degree in as little as 18 months. If you wish to pursue a bachelor's degree after earning your A.S. in General Studies, you'll have the advantage of a smooth transfer to a four-year university.
