General Studies Degree

Chart Your Future with a Degree in General Studies!

You know you need a college education to get ahead in life, but you can’t find one that really fits your educational or career goals. At University of the Cumberlands, we have the program you need because it’s the program you personalize!

Our General Studies program, offered at bachelor’s and associate levels, lets you put together a degree program that perfectly fits your educational needs … and your career goals. Instead of focusing on one specific field of study, you’re able to explore and excel in multiple disciplines. You’ll select three minors to pursue from three distinct academic departments to chart your course to an Associate of Science or your Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Music degree in General Studies.

It’s the perfect degree program for working professionals already established in a career, who want to prepare for advancement opportunities and are looking to capitalize on prior learning experiences. Transfer in credit from previously taken college courses and shorten your time to graduation.

With core coursework in math, science, culture, history and faith, whatever undergraduate degree level you pursue, you’ll benefit from a well-rounded education of Arts & Sciences curriculum. And you’ll gain the foundational skills in professionalism, communication and critical thinking that traditionally comes with a college education.

Prepare for your brighter future with a personalized General Studies degree from University of the Cumberlands. Contact us today to learn more about our bachelor’s and associate degree programs.
