General studies or classic studies usually refer to flexible programmes offered to students who intend to design unique study plans that fit their particular academic interests. This is especially useful for students who have left college at some point in the past and wish to complete their degrees.

General studies degrees are considered interdisciplinary as students have a high degree of freedom in choosing their preferred courses. Such degrees are usually offered by colleges and universities at Bachelor?s level in order to facilitate the transition of students to advanced graduate programmes. Students usually choose a desired major and may select to pursue additional concentrations and study options.

Courses usually include a wide range of topics belonging to humanities, arts and sciences including fields such as business, education, law, government, healthcare, real estate, social services, and more. Some general studies degrees are also available online to suit the needs of working adults.

General studies graduates go on to study advanced programmes in anthropology, divinity studies, education, fine arts, international affairs, library science, management, nursing, public health, and more, or choose careers related to their pursued interests.
