The A.S. in General Studies is designed to produce a well-rounded critical thinker with the ability to analyze and synthesize disparate topics, function effectively in workplace teams, and direct his/her actions based on an understanding of ethical behavior and personal responsibility. Built around a core of general education goals, the General Studies program provides a flexible scaffold upon which students may assemble a unique program of study designed to accommodate individual needs, interests, and experiences.
The A.S. in General Studies is a program where students will complete one, four-credit course every eight weeks. Previously earned transfer credits from accredited institutions may be used to fulfill required and elective courses. Based upon the student’s transfer credits, general education requirements, and selection of free electives from any Medaille College’s currently approved courses, a student and his/her advisor will build a program schedule that fulfills program requirements while allowing the student to maintain full-time status.
Students are permitted to transfer up to 45 credits into the A.S. in General Studies.
