Associate of General Studies Degree

This flexible program is available for those who wish to tailor an associate degree to their own specific educational needs. The program will provide a variety of educational experiences and career opportunities. Since the program offers students a choice of general education core and electives, it is extremely important for the student to use care in course selection. If the primary goal is to transfer, the student must learn in advance of the particular requirements of the intended school or university. If the primary goal involves occupational skills or personal growth, the student must consult with an LCC advisor before selecting courses.
