Program Overview

If you’ve completed studies in a variety of areas, both academic and applied, a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies is a way to bring those diverse subjects into a cohesive degree program. The program is unlike most in that you won’t need to repeat coursework already completed to fulfill the requirements of an established program. This degree is an excellent choice if you aren’t certain which course of study to pursue, or if you’re coming back to school after taking time off to work or be with family and, in the interim, experienced a shift in academic focus or career goals. The general studies degree allows you to build on the studies you’ve already completed and use them as stepping-stones to a respected and rounded degree program.
