General Studies is excellent preparation for entry into career studies, university-transfer and degree programs at MacEwan University, and various other faculties in Alberta universities. The General Studies program offers university credit coursework in the following areas: anthropology, art history, biology, classics, computer science, drama, economics, health education, history, music, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.
Students are encouraged to seek admission to a degree or university-transfer program, even if their academic goal is undecided. If a student does not meet the admission requirements of the Bachelor of Arts or another university program, the General Studies program may be the right option. University credit courses are available through the General Studies program, although it is not considered a degree or university-transfer program.
- General Studies offers a liberal arts education. Normally, only first-year courses are available to General Studies students
- Students are encouraged, but not required, to complete a General Studies diploma (60 credits) while enrolled in the program. General Studies students who have completed the diploma will be eligible for MacEwan University alumni benefits
The General Studies program is not designed as a career program. However, the benefits of its liberal arts programming can be an important asset to any career. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the General Studies program to ensure it is appropriate to assist them with their academic goals.
