Associate in Science Degree

General Studies is intended for students who wish to design a personalized degree program for exploration or to meet educational and career goals. It’s also for students who may have credits from several colleges who wish to “collect” their credits into an Associate Degree credential. This program is not designed primarily for transfer purposes. It does not provide adequate guidance for meeting the admissions and transfer requirements of baccalaureate institutions without careful assistance from advisors at both Middlesex and the college or university where a student plans to attend.

MxCC is committed to a sound liberal arts education and the development of a solid foundation of professional skills, which are incorporated through specific requirements in the program. The program also offers a great deal of flexibility as a basis for further study or career paths. However, transferring students who wish to pursue liberal arts degrees are encouraged to consider the Liberal Arts and Sciences program, which is specifically designed for this purpose. Other transferring students should ask their advisor to recommend the best program to meet their specific needs. Learn More About This Program >
