The online Associate of Science in General Studies degree offers not only specialized knowledge and professional skills, but also the multiple views and general intellectual abilities developed by the study of liberal arts and sciences. General Education is the component of the undergraduate curriculum devoted to exposing you to multiple areas of knowledge, methods of inquiry, and ideas that the University and scholarly community believe are common to well-educated persons. Ideally, General Education empowers individuals, liberates the mind from ignorance, and cultivates social responsibility. This degree will form the basis for developing important intellectual capacities and skills. It also provides a strong foundation for future learning, both within a college major and for the rest of your life.
