General Studies Degree
Students majoring in General Studies are advised in the Division of Language, Humanities and Education, but students are not limited to course work or fields of emphasis in this division. The General Studies major is designed for the student who wants to tailor his or her coursework to address particular educational, career, or personal goals. After completing the A.A., graduates may enter universities to major in general (interdisciplinary) studies. Students may also enter other majors, but additional lower–division courses may be needed.
Many students choose to pursue an associate degree in General Studies as a way of preparing for a four-year degree at a college or university. However, there are many career opportunities available for those who wish to enter the workforce immediately, especially for paraprofessionals in business and industry. Graduates may work as administrative assistants, bank tellers, customer service representatives, sales representatives, retail managers, and more.
A college degree is an investment in your future. There are many lifelong benefits of a quality education that exceed the initial costs involved. Tuition and fees at Eastern Oklahoma State College are among the lowest in the nation. Plus, Eastern offers a variety of institutional scholarships, as well as subject-related scholarships for students who demonstrate high academic qualifications and financial need. Federal and state financial aid and grant opportunities are also available to help fund your education.
