Bachelor of General Studies

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.
