Online Minors for the Bachelor of Arts in General Studies Degree Program

Minors are not required for BGS students. However, the addition of a minor can add more depth to a specialty and increase job options once you graduate. You can have as many as three (3) minors within the BGS Program.

Course availability subject to College Deans and Academic Programofferings.
