The purpose of this program is to offer a student an opportunity for a broad-based degree rather than focusing on any one major area. Specific courses listed meet the general education requirements for EWC. It is suggested that you work with your advisor to select other electives. Degree requirements vary greatly at four-year institutions, so the student should consult the catalog of the college or university of his/her choice for information on specific program requirements. Also, the student should be aware that the Associate of Arts degree is considered the traditional “transfer” degree, so it may be a better choice for students.

Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a “C” or better.
