University of Bridgeport General Studies

Three degree programs are offered through the General Studies program: Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in General Studies. These degrees offer maximum flexibility to explore curricula of the different undergraduate programs at the University.

In the B.S. in General Studies program, students work with an academic advisor to design an academic program tailored to their specific needs and goals. For example, one might combine a Business Studies concentration that focuses on Marketing and Management with a minor in Mass Communications, or combine a Social Sciences concentration that focuses on Psychology and Sociology with a Human Services minor. The Natural Sciences and Mathematics concentration is frequently used to fulfill the science prerequisites for graduate study in the health professions, leaving a student room to explore the undergraduate curriculum in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Human Services.

The B.S. in General Studies is an excellent option for transfer students since it allows the maximum number of free electives permitted by the university. Program graduates have attended business, law, and medical school. Many have gone on to careers in education, human services, and community service.
