Bachelor of General Studies (Independent Study)
By earning your Bachelor of General Studies from the University of North Dakota, you will have advanced knowledge and skills that will give you flexibility in employment.
The field of study does not train you for a specific career or vocation, but it demonstrates to potential employers that you possess:
- a breadth of knowledge in a wide range of subject areas.
- advanced critical thinking skills.
- effective communication skills.
Many occupations and employers require a bachelor’s degree for entry level positions. Typically, individuals with a bachelor’s degree earn more and have more advancement opportunities than those with an associate’s degree or high school diploma.
