The purpose of the Associate of Arts degree in General Studies is to provide a flexible degree program that allows students to complete their degree by attending classes that focus primarily on general education courses, yet provides insight into a variety of potential academic pathways for those who are undecided about a major. The General Studies program offers practical introductions to the field of general education classes at the college level. Additionally, students may transfer many, if not all, credits to a four-year college or University if they choose to pursue a Bachelor's degree.
