Associate of General Studies
Yavapai College

Program Details

The online Associate of General Studies degree program from Yavapai College is designed for students whose career, major, or transfer intent is uncertain, allowing them to uniquely design an associate's degree with more flexibility in the selection of courses. The general education curriculum is divided into three parts:

  • Foundation Studies include critical literacy, precise writing, qualitative thinking, and the process of analysis and synthesis that underlie logical reasoning
  • Core Studies focus on the conceptual frameworks through which a thinker, a culture, or an academic discipline may approach an issue
  • Area Studies link foundation skills in thinking and communicating and the core emphasis on conceptual frameworks to the content orientation of academic disciplines


  • A high school diploma or GED
