Sometimes students enter East Central College without knowing what they would like to study or pursue as a career. For these individuals, ECC offers a general studies transfer degree program.
Assuming appropriate placement scores, general studies is a two-year academic plan. It gives students the freedom to explore coursework from multiple disciplines while providing core learning from the general education curriculum block. In addition, ECC offers various student activities, organizations and practicum experiences that both enrich collegiate life and help students explore their future education and career goals.
With their academic advisor, general studies students should choose electives based on their personal interests, educational and professional objectives and the requirements of their desired transfer institution. In addition, they must meet the skill and knowledge area requirements as outlined in the college catalog.
