HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO EARN MY DEGREE?

Most General Studies majors finish their degree in 3-4 years. Requirements total 60 hours, which are distributed among three divisions.

DID YOU KNOW?

You’ll have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities on campus such as the school newspaper, student government, or intramural sports to hone your skills and develop community with other majors.

WHAT WILL I STUDY?

The General Studies major is designed to provide a wide exposure to the liberal arts rather than a concentration in one department or division. This major provides an interdisciplinary program that may be suited for those transferring from a Bible school or community college.
