Associate of Arts in General Studies
Associate of Arts in General Studies (A.A. GENS)
The Associate of Arts degree requires completion of 36 semester hours of credit that is aligned with the Ohio Transfer Module. These classes are mandated by the State of Ohio and can be transferred to any public institution within the state. They include the commonly required subjects of Mathematics, English Composition, Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Science, and Multicultural Studies.
An additional 24 semester hours must be completed in 1000-2000 level classes chosen by the student to support transfer to a baccalaureate degree program, or fulfill personal interests. Students may elect to enroll for entry-level classes in the major of choice and fulfill program pre-requisites through the completion of these hours. Students must complete a minimum of 15 semester hours of credit as a University College Degree Program Associate degree student (per UT Academic Policy 3364-71-10 available on the UT Policy website).
Many popular majors like criminal justice, communication, and psychology have a series of classes at the 1000-2000 level that must be completed by all majors and these classes align perfectly with the General Studies curriculum. Students will also have the benefit of completing an intermediate credential en route to the Bachelor’s degree, which may aid in persistence and retention to graduation at a higher level. At a minimum, students will have completed a suite of transferable classes that may apply to nearly all baccalaureate degrees.
A variety of information about the programs and services available to students enrolling in the Associate of Arts in General Studies is available through the University College website.
A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale) is required for admission to the Associate of Arts program. Students entering the program directly from high school must also have a minimum score of 15 on the ACT. The University of Toledo requirements for the TOEFL must also be fulfilled for admission of international students.
