(Can be completed in online format)
The Associate of General Studies degree enables students to combine a broad core of basic courses with a program that can be tailored to their personal, academic, or professional goals. This degree may enhance current employment and/or fulfill the requirements for a specific college or university program. Intended as a flexible degree for students who are not pursing a specified curriculum in the transfer or professional-technical area, the degree may also be appropriate for students who are undecided about future educational or career goals. Many General Studies graduates continue their studies at a college or university in such diverse fields as literature, fine and performing arts, education, religion, human services, philosophy, political and social sciences, and sports.
