Program Details

Eastern Illinois University offers the Bachelor of Arts in General Studies program which is designed to meet the educational goals of students who are otherwise unable to take part in a traditional university setting. The program is offered entirely online for the benefit of those students, who for various reasons are unable to meet the rigors of a classroom. The benefit of an online education is that it opens advanced educational opportunities without requiring students to sacrifice their professional or personal schedules in order to do so. 

A degree in General Studies will be the basis for a future graduate level education by allowing students to complete their general education requirements without choosing a curriculum path for a particular branch of study. Students will study the arts and sciences, based on composition, mathematics, sciences, humanities, social studies and technology. With this program, students will be prepared for jobs in a variety of fields, and will be prepared for graduate education in a field of their choosing as they develop professionally.
