General Studies

DESCRIPTION

The General Studies degree is a flexible program of study allowing students to develop a program meeting their individual professional and academic goals. This self-designed degree is intended for: 1) students awaiting admission to the Nursing program and 2) students wishing to design a major tailored to their career objectives.  

Students awaiting admission to the Nursing Program are recommended to take courses that are pre-requisites or co-requisites of the Nursing Program requirements.  If a student has not completed high school or college algebra, chemistry with lab and biology with lab classes, all with a minimum grade of “C” or higher, the student should enroll in the appropriate coursework to meet this requirement.

Students seeking a self-designed degree program will be able to combine assessment of prior learning/work experience, with focused coursework in one or two major areas of study to build a pathway meeting their degree requirements. The General Studies degree is also perfect for the student wanting to build transfer credits for a degree major other than those offered at LRCC. With proper planning and course selection, the entire 64 credits in the General Studies program will transfer to the desired four year program.
