What will I learn?

The associate of general studies degree provides students the flexibility to create a customized program of study designed to fulfill a unique career goal which is not available through any single technical certificate or associate of applied science degree currently offered at Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus.

Students who earn this degree will take a core of general education course work and technical coursework (or higher college level course work) recommended by an academic advisor. The associate of general studies provides a degree path toward the Bachelor of Professional Studies or another bachelor degree. Students may utilize multiple disciplinary training options in a variety of technical fields. Certificate programs currently without a degree option and students who are taking industry requested specialized courses tailored to employer needs may utilize this pathway to a degree.
