A.S. Degree with emphasis in General Studies
Western Wyoming Community College
Students at Western Wyoming Community College may earn an Associate of Science Degree with a focus on General Studies. This program may be ideal for students interested in earning a Bachelor of Science degree, but who are not sure which program they wish to pursue. As students can take a variety of classes from many of the major departments, they should have the chance to explore different subjects and examine which ones interest them the most. The program also meets the WWCC Associate of Arts requirements.
This program may be ideal for students unsure about the major they wish to pursue as it touches on many of the basic subject area. Students will study many subjects from English to various sciences, government, social sciences, and mathematics. Other topic areas include those in human health and the humanities. Students may also select courses from a list of electives in order to continue with certain areas of interest or to fulfill course requirements from potential four year institutions. Students should consult with their advisor as to which institution they wish to transfer to, if that is their intended plan after graduation, in order to plan a course of study that will best meet the requirements of that institution.
Earning an Associate’s degree prior to entering a four-year school typically has several advantages. The online format allows students to work at their own pace while even holding down a job, and students can earn a quality education while exploring the world of academia beyond high school. They may also be able to complete several general education requirements that many four-year colleges require, and this program should fulfill many of those requirements at surrounding institutions.

Western Wyoming Community College is a public, tax-supported, two-year, co-educational institution. Western Wyoming Community College, the fifth of seven community colleges in Wyoming, was established in the fall of 1959. Through the efforts of a citizens’ committee, a campaign was begun, an election was held, and the college and the original district were created. The mission of Wyoming's community colleges is "to provide access to post-secondary educational opportunities by offering broad comprehensive programs in academic as well as vocational-technical subjects." Wyoming's community colleges are low-tuition, open access institutions focusing on academic transfer programs, career and occupational programs, developmental and basic skills instruction, adult and continuing education, economic development training, public and community services programming and student support services. WWCC offers associate's degrees and certificates, many of which can be earned online.
