General Studies, B.S. (Professional Studies)

The Bachelor of Science in General Studies offers adults with nontraditional academic backgrounds, as well as those who have had previous college coursework, an opportunity to attain a bachelor’s degree through a flexible course of study. Also Available Online.

Personalized advisement is the key to this approach. With the assistance and guidance of a trained advisor, students design a program around their strengths, experiences, and aspirations, drawing from the various courses of the College. Many adults pursuing a career change appreciate the flexibility of this degree and continue on to pursue graduate degree programs. Of the 120 credits required for the degree (effective students entering Fall 2015), at least 60 must be in the liberal arts, including ENG 103 - Writing for Effective Communication  and LIB 100 - Library Research Strategies .

The Department reserves the right to require an additional English writing course(s) at any point in a student’s program if deemed appropriate based on the student’s writing level.
