"If my students could leave my classroom knowing only one thing it would be: know why you believe what you believe. I want my students, and all people, to think critically. Critical thinkers are the most successful people and make the best citizens." - Dr. Joshua Stockley, Associate Professor Political Science, School of Behavioral and Social Sciences, College of Business & Social Sciences.
The General Studies program offers a unique challenge for continued self-improvement and for career enhancement. The flexibility of the program makes this degree available to the student with some college experience and a wide range of interests. Because a general studies degree is not centered on any particular career field, it is the perfect entry-level degree for a multitude of occupations. Many jobs do not require industry-specific course work, but do require a bachelor’s degree or equivalent. A degree in general studies is also a great way to begin an educational career for those who are not sure what they want to study. Students can study a broad array of subjects for their undergraduate degree and focus more on career specific training in their graduate work.
