Associate of General Studies (AGS)
The purpose of the degree in general studies is to provide the student an opportunity to pursue a broad general education at a community college. It is intended as a flexible program for the student who is not preparing for a specific major in the lower division transfer or career-technical area. Because of the flexibility and broad approach of this degree, a student may find that courses used to fulfill the requirements may not necessarily be accepted as transfer level at a four-year institution.
