You can take the time to explore your personal and academic interests in an adaptable learning experience with a General Studies degree. Created with working people and students who have changed majors in mind, the major is grounded in the liberal arts.
As you adapt your studies to your interests and goals, you will gain a progressive depth of knowledge in a specialized area of study, becoming adept at integrative thinking and “thinking outside the box.”

Up to 90 credits
The General Studies major is student-directed, with the oversight of an advisor. You will choose a study focus and take a minimum of 12 credits in one discipline, but will be able to branch out further in your interests. For example, you could study the plays of Shakespeare in one course, economic theory in another and biblical interpretation in yet another.
At the end of the program, you will develop a project that demonstrates integrative thinking and proficiency in chosen areas.
Cultivating critical thinking and analytical skills enables students to find success in a range of careers, including nonprofit and human services agencies, entertainment and media.
