Degree
AA - General Studies with an Emphasis in Social Behavior and

The General Studies degree with an area of emphasis is designed to give students a broad introduction to an area of knowledge represented by related disciplines and topics. This degree is intended for students who may not be intending to pursue a specific occupational major, nor are they necessarily planning to transfer. However, careful educational planning with a counselor will help to ensure that, if a student did decide at a later date to transfer to a university, they would have a foundation in the transfer planning process. Students will select an “Area of Emphasis” from the following four options based on their interests and educational goals.

These courses provide students knowledge and understanding of social behavior and self-development. This area of emphasis is designed to prepare students to use their understanding of themselves and others to communicate and collaborate more effectively. It combines knowledge of theory with attention to personal growth and purpose, as well as health and wellness.

Students learn to become citizens who care for themselves and others, ready to work with people in their communities. Participation in group activities and collaborative projects is a central focus of this emphasis, allowing students to experience group interactions in a variety of contexts. This emphasis includes lower division coursework that prepares students for potential careers in people/community-oriented professions including social, health and recreational services.

Please contact the Student Success Team for this program if you have any questions.
