Undecided and General Studies
Department Chairperson - Ms. Kristi Bowers
The General Studies and Undecided curricula both begin with a broad core of instruction in the humanities, behavioral/social sciences, and natural sciences. The courses provide students with a well-rounded academic experience and provide them with flexibility when entering various programs.
The Associate of Science General Studies curriculum helps prepare students to fully matriculate into a degree-granting program. Students in General Studies may design a curriculum to focus on preparation for a particular occupation or to enter a specific associate degree program. Students are encouraged to declare a major by the end of the first year.
Students who are exploring bachelor degree programs at Mount Aloysius College may choose to begin in the Bachelor of Science Undecided/Exploratory Studies curriculum. All students in Undecided/Exploratory Studies will complete LA 105 within their first year of study. Students will schedule classes to meet the College’s Core requirements and meet regularly with their advisors as well as with Career Services. Students are encouraged to declare a major by the end of the first year and not later than their fourth semester of full-time college enrollment.
All students in either the General Studies or Undecided programs must complete, if required, the Educational Enrichment courses successfully. For further information and approval of course of study, students should see their advisor.
