Many opportunities await you as a general studies major, including the ability to adapt your studies to augment your specific interests. Here you will create an interdisciplinary approach to learning, enabling you to enroll in courses that you will undoubtedly find motivating and engaging.
In the General Studies program, you can choose to make friends and network with other students who share your interests. You also have the option to complete much of your coursework online or away from the IUP campus. Regardless to how you design your individualized program of study, many opportunities are available to enrich your student experience. As well, the flexibility of our program enables you to choose a minor to supplement your area of interest.
The General Studies program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is ideal for students who don’t want to be limited by one specific subject, or for those who would like to tailor their undergraduate coursework toward a specific post-baccalaureate curriculum. Graduates from our program have found success in all walks of life. Feel free to contact Professor Jenkins by phone or email. We look forward to seeing you soon at IUP.
