About This Program

The Associate of General Studies degree allows students the flexibility to design their own degrees. It can contain traditional transfer courses as well as professional or technical courses. Although many courses leading to the Associate of General Studies Degree may be transferable on an individual basis, sometimes the combination of courses will not complete a major area suitable for transfer. Students should see an advisor pertaining to the transfer of courses taken to complete the Associate of General Studies Degree.

The Associate of General Studies degree provides students the opportunity to pursue a flexible degree program to meet their unique interests, career goals, and academic needs. Reflecting ASUMH’s commitment to student-centered education, the degree allows students to concentrate in an area of interest while selecting from a wide variety of courses to meet personal, educational, or career goals. The AGS allows students to take courses related to multiple professions while they narrow down their career paths. This degree is designed for students who want to advance in their careers, change careers, pursue a lifelong interest beyond their careers, or use the degree as a pathway to a baccalaureate degree, understanding that courses that transfer will depend on the receiving institution.

Transferable Degrees & Stackable Credentials
Transferrable degrees are programs of study that allow students to complete general education courses. Many students who intend to transfer to another college/university complete these degree programs.
Stackable Credentials are Technical Certificates that might be “stacked” to meet requirements for a higher-level certificate or degree program like an associate's degree.
