General Studies courses are usually taught by counseling and librarian faculty members. They are credit courses that will help you learn more about the college and yourself, develop study and time management skills, and explore careers.
Who benefits from taking courses in General Studies?
Every student can benefit from the General Studies courses – especially those students who are seeking help with study skills, information literacy, career exploration, parenting skills, and personal development.
Why is it important?
General Studies courses help with the transition to college. The courses can provide students with the tools to become a better student and earn their college degree. These skills are also transferable to a student’s chosen career.
Some courses have prerequisite requirements that must be met before you can register. Prerequisites are listed at the end of each course description. Select your course of study and make sure you have the appropriate knowledge and/or skills to be successful in the course in which you wish to enroll.
If you are planning to take courses to transfer to another college work closely with Tri-C counselors to follow transfer guides and agreements set up with our university partners. You can also use Transferology, A free online advising tool designed for transfer students. It provides access to information that will help students plan for their academic future.
