Associate of Arts in General Studies
Associate of Arts in General Studies (A.A. GENS)
The Associate of Arts degree is a sixty-hour program that allows students to complete UT core curriculum classes and incorporate classes from baccalaureate majors that they are interested in exploring.
The Associate of Arts in General Studies requires the completion of 36 semester hours of UT Core credit that is aligned with the Ohio Transfer Module. It also requires an additional 24 semester hours which 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.
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 19 ACT/800+ SAT/88+ NEW SAT. Transfer students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA. The University of Toledo requirements for the TOEFL must also be fulfilled for admission of international students.
