General Studies, AA&S


The Associate of Arts and Sciences in General Studies (Plan Code 697) is intended to provide students with a general course of study that parallels the freshman and sophomore years at most colleges and universities. Although not all four-year colleges and universities treat the degree as a pure transfer degree, the courses in this program are specifically selected for ease of transfer to most four-year colleges and universities.

Program Requirements and Special Conditions

Students must meet ESCC admission requirements. Students must also complete placement tests (or equivalent) in English and mathematics, and scores will be used for appropriate course placement. If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, ESCC offers developmental and prerequisite courses to prepare students for the curriculum. New students should see a counselor and returning students should see their advisor for more information.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to:

  • Explore, interpret, and represent the human experience and cultural awareness through the arts and social sciences.
  • Read, write and analyze effectively across a number of disciplines.
  • Integrate and apply the fundamental principles of scientific inquiry, social sciences, arts, and humanities.
