What will I learn?

This program provides maximum flexibility for students who have well-defined career objectives and wish to determine the content of their degree rather than pursue one of the established majors at A&M Commerce. The degree program includes general education requirements and an area of concentration but not a specific major.

The specific objectives of the General Studies degree are to provide courses of study, opportunities, and experiences to assist students in the following ways: prepare students to enter a career requiring broad and in-depth knowledge and skills; allow students to obtain a flexible, general college education with major and minor emphasis areas; prepare some students to enter professional schools or graduate programs in other disciplines; offer a degree option to students with new interests or those changing their majors late in their academic careers; and assist students in career planning and in the transition into the workforce.

After completing 85 hours of coursework toward your degree from an accredited institution you are only 36 semester hours away from graduating with a bachelor's degree. Each course is available online allowing you the flexibility to complete your degree at a time and place most convenient for you.
