General Studies, B.G.S.

The flexibility of this 120 credit hour program makes this degree available to the student with some college experience and a wide range of interests.

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 many different subjects for their undergraduate degree and focus more on career specific training in their graduate work.
