This pathway is the most flexible pathway offered for students at VSCC. Students who do not know what to major in, who are looking to advance their career, or who want a major we do not offer should pursue this option. Students should work with an advisor to customize their studies to fit their interests while completing the General Education core. This pathway is for students planning to continue their education to earn a bachelor’s degree. Below are a few examples of possible careers for those with a degree in General Studies and the associated salary information.
All Technical Certificates are embedded within the Associate of Arts, General Studies area of emphasis. Courses in the certificates may be used to award this area of emphasis.
This emphasis is not currently part of a Tennessee Transfer Pathway, and, therefore, it may not be fully transferable. Since general education and major requirements vary from one transfer institution to another, it is essential that transfer students decide on a transfer institution as soon as possible and refer to the general education and major requirements in that institution’s catalog when planning a program of study. Contact your advisor for additional information.
All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the E-Proficiency Profile (EPP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/graduation/exit-exams.
