Department of General Studies

William E. Mason, Ph.D. Chair

In addition to the general education requirements, students can obtain a general education major or minor. The major and minor in General Studies is a flexible degree oriented toward nontraditional students. The degree serves the student with a diversity of educational experiences. It also serves students from technical and other backgrounds not easily integrated into a traditional degree program.

The major requires 33 semester hours, and a minor requires 18 hours in an area in the Baptist College of Arts and Sciences. No specific courses are required in the general studies major or minor.   However, fifty percent of the courses in the concentration must be upper level courses (3000-4000). This degree is not available for students who must meet state or national certification.
