General studies programs (or interdisciplinary studies) provide students with a broad education. This type of education provide students with the broad knowledge they need to succeed in a wide range of careers. Some students may pursue this type of degree if they have not yet decided on what they want to do with their career.
These programs permit students the maximum flexibility to explore different areas of concentration for their education and careers. Many of these programs require a specific focus for a significant portion of the credits, while still providing a broad general education.
