The General Studies degree offers student three different ways to pursue their educational and career goals.

The Associate in Science General Studies degree requires 60 credits: 30 credits in a coherent major and an additional 30 credits in electives. 

Option #1 – Self Design: A student can design an Associate Degree in majors not covered by the college’s standard programs and certificates. Only #1 and #2 are options from which a student can graduate.

 

Option #2 – Certificate to Degree: A student can build an Associate Degree major around a certificate program the college offers that does not already have an Associate Degree option.

Option #3 – Exploratory: Students can explore a variety of college-level courses before deciding on a major. They can also take courses while waiting to apply to a competitive program. Students should work closely with their academic advisor to determine their program of study before completing 24 credits. Students cannot graduate from General Studies Option #3 - Exploratory.
