General Studies Degree
The general studies degree (also known as ‘general education degree’) allows working adults to develop critical thinking abilities, communication skills and the Christian values necessary to become effective servant leaders, both in ministry and in the workplace. The associate degree in general studies helps prepare students to move on to advanced studies in a bachelor of science degree program.
The associate degree in general studies is also an appropriate option for those planning to transfer to another institution to complete a higher degree in a discipline not offered at Point University. Point’s Hybrid program offers the associate degree in general studies at six convenient locations as well as online.
