Rather than focusing narrowly on a specific area of study, a Bachelor of Arts degree allows students to expand their interests through diverse courses aimed at creating well-rounded professionals. Classes prepare scholars to enter their chosen field with a breadth of knowledge and experience.

What is a BA in General Studies? This course of study is uniquely individual, allowing each student to complete the requirements of study at a university level without having to adhere to classes required by a specific major. This allows students to take both applied and academic courses such as biology, economics, physics and philosophy. A general studies degree is also perfect for those who stopped mid-degree and are returning, allowing them to obtain a degree without retaking classes.

Students earning a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies gain skills in many areas of applied and academic study. Mathematical and critical-thinking skills, as well as management and marketing skills, prepare them to work in a variety of careers as well as help them in everyday life.

A degree in general studies is available from many institutions worldwide, and the cost is as varied as the schools offering it. With so many choices, it is best for prospective students to become familiar with the costs associated with attending the school of their choice.

Some universities offer degrees in general studies that also have an area of concentration, which does narrow the field a bit, but for most graduates in general studies, the degree allows the person to custom-build a career path. Some of the more popular careers sought include accountant, international salesperson, marketing professional or technical writer. Others pursue careers in the public sector such as government or law enforcement.

Universities offering this degree span the globe. For anyone who needs a flexible schedule or location, online courses are also a good option. To prepare, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
