The College of Arts and Sciences offers an associate in arts (A.A.) in General Studies. This program of study is intended for students seeking a terminal associate in arts degree and those seeking the associate in arts degree as a possible steppingstone to a bachelor’s degree. It is also relevant for students who are undecided or wish to explore alternative majors, but are too far along in their degree requirements for the Academic Exploration Program.
The aim of this program is to provide students with a broadly based, integrated course of study in liberal studies which introduces students to a specific body of knowledge, stimulates a student’s intellectual curiosity and encourages future study. Individual schedules are tailor made with your advisor to explore your academic and career goals. As students figure out their interests, the curriculum can be adjusted to assist them in transitioning to a specific bachelor’s degree program. A student enrolled in this program selects from the same courses available to other NU students.
