General Studies

students

The General Studies degree is a flexible program of study allowing students to develop a program meeting their individual professional and academic goals. This flexibility allows students 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.

Since the General Studies program is individually tailored and allows for exploration of options not provided within existing LRCC degree programs, it is imperative that the student formulate and identify his/her own career and/or transfer goals with the assistance of your General Studies advisor.
