The General Studies major is designed to provide a wide exposure to the liberal arts rather than a concentration in one department or division. This major provides an interdisciplinary program that may be suited for those transferring from a Bible school or community college.

Requirements total 60 hours, which are distributed among three divisions. The following courses are excluded: ENG 214, ENG 241X, ENG 441X, HPW 180, HPWA activities classes, MUZ 214, applied music, and music organizations. Students must also meet general education requirements. The number of hours within the major that meet general education requirements depends on the three divisions selected.

Prioritize three divisions, as follows, from the College's academic divisions.

Division 1 Complete 30 hours, with a minimum of 12 hours in 300-level or above courses
Division 2 Complete 18 hours, with a minimum of 6 hours in 300-level or above courses
Division 3 Complete 12 hours, with a minimum of 3 hours in 300-level or above courses
