Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Associate Degree and Certificate Programs

(60 semester hours minimum)

This program gives the student flexibility to explore new areas and interests while working toward an Associate’s degree. If you are not ready to select an area of study, this program may be a place to start. Courses taken in the General Studies program may also be used for transfer to a 4-year college; however, it is preferable for students who know they will be transferring to complete the Liberal Arts and Sciences degree.

Learners who complete the General Studies degree will satisfy the General Education Outcomes and accrue course work in areas selected in consultation with an advisor.

No more than 15 credits in a single subject may be counted as open electives toward the Associate in Science degree in General Studies.

For more information, contact the Advising Center.
