Associate of General Studies (AGS)

Whether you're just getting started or already have some college credit, the Associate of General Studies degree may be an excellent choice. An Associate's degree allows you to meet short-term educational goals and gain critical-thinking, problem-solving, math, and communication skills to help you move ahead in your current job or prepare you for a new career. To earn an Associate of General Studies degree, you will complete 60 credit hours, or roughly 20 classes. The program of study fulfills the core requirements for a four-year degree, but it also allows you to explore a wide range of information in many disciplines. Plus, you will customize your program of study by taking 12 hours of electives and 12 hours in a concentration area that you select - you can focus on subjects that connect to your current position or prepare you for your dream job.
