General Studies

The Bachelor of General Studies is specifically designed for non-traditional students who seek a bachelor’s degree for career advancement and self-improvement. This degree completion program allows students who have an associate’s degree or have accumulated a minimum of 64 semester hours with a GPA of 2.0 or above to earn their bachelor’s degrees in a timely manner.

The Bachelor of General Studies program provides a curriculum of study which focuses on the development of oral and written communication skills and analytical and ethical thinking, combined with a liberal arts component to balance the technical knowledge previously acquired. Students have the option of adding an Area of Focus.

The Bachelor of General Studies curriculum also allows students the flexibility to earn a degree while using their acquired academic and professional training. The format, unlike a traditional full-time schedule, allows students to move through the curriculum at their own pace, either one course at a time or several courses each semester.

Students must meet math and English competency requirements. English composition must be taken in addition to the above if not included in the associate’s degree or transfer hours earned.
