The General Studies degree provides students the opportunity to pursue a personalized course of study. This major allows students to explore and integrate academic offerings from across multiple departments, programs, and colleges. A General Studies degree is in the tradition of a liberal arts degree that educates a student broadly. This degree is not to be confused with USU’s Interdisciplinary Studies degree—also a degree that offers a personalized course of study, but one that has specific structural requirements of two thematically organized sets of coursework.
The BA degree is available through the following colleges: Caine College of the Arts, Agriculture, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, Education, and Business.
The BS degree is available through the following colleges: Caine College of the Arts, Agriculture, Humanities and Social Sciences, Natural Resources, Science, Education, and Engineering.
The AS and AA are available through University Advising.
Career Services provides counseling and information on hundreds of job and internship opportunities and even helps students apply and interview.
