General Studies

An Associates Degree in General Studies is perfect for students exploring the college experience or students who have many transfer credits from other institutions.

The Associate of General Studies Degree provides a flexible option for students who wish to combine coursework in several areas of interest. Students can design a program of study around their interests by selecting a variety of courses in one or more areas.

The Associate of General Studies degree is especially designed for those students who have gained significant learning through their life/work experience, but who may benefit from an individually planned course of study based on their academic or occupational interests. Students earn this degree using CCC courses, transfer credits, and courses accepted through testing options as noted in the CCC Course Catalog. This degree is available completely online.

Benefits of a General Studies Degree:

  • Students with credits from multiple institutions in multi—disciplines can consolidate their previous course work into one degree.
  • Students who are initially undecided have an opportunity to explore their areas of interest while working on a degree.
  • Depending on course choices, classes may transfer to other colleges and universities and be accepted toward a bachelor's degree.
  • Military students can use CCAF and other military credits as electives to complete this degree.
  • Students who have a GED can satisfy military entrance requirements while accumulating credits toward an associate degree.
  • Lifelong learners can earn a degree with a variety of credits of their choosing.

According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, students completing an Associate's degree are likely to earn approximately $7,000 per year more than those with just a high school diploma or less. Here are the classes you need to take in order to earn your Associate of General Studies degree. You can also view the CCC Course Catalog for more details, including course descriptions.
