General Studies

Why General Studies?

General Studies is a non-specialist degree program designed for students with varied interests. Students in the General Studies program enjoy greater flexibility and breadth in subject matter than is provided by traditional degree programs. Graduates with a General Studies degree have found careers in management, social services, entertainment, and many other fields.

 

Advising

We strongly encourage you to be advised every semester. Ultimately, students are responsible for knowing and meeting all degree/graduation requirements in accordance with their relevant ISU catalog, and meeting regularly with an advisor can help assure that this is accomplished.
 
Formal advising for General Studies students takes place during the two weeks before registration begins, once the online schedule is available. However, you can meet at any time with the General Studies advisor (see contact information below).
