Online Associate's Degree

Jumpstart your career.

We get it: choosing a career path can be daunting. Sometimes, you just wish you had a little more guidance or direction. With our online associate degree program, you can start building a better future while still exploring your interests. As you pursue your Associate of Arts in General Studies degree, you’ll take core classes - like science and history - that will challenge your thinking and advance your education. And upon completion of the program, you’ll not only have a clearer idea of the career you want to pursue, but you’ll also be one step closer to earning a bachelor’s degree.

You can continue to explore your passions outside of your coursework, too: our 100% online program is flexible and made to fit your schedule. Just because the program is online doesn’t mean you’ll be going at it alone. We’ll pair you with a personal success coach who will guide you as you learn what it takes to excel as a professional.
