Online General Studies Associate Degree
Are you considering higher education? Returning to college with or without transfer credits? Undecided about an educational direction or major? Crown’s online General Studies associate degree program provides students with the flexibility to broaden or narrow their learning during their first two years of undergraduate education.
Transfer students are welcome to apply their existing credits to the program, regardless of academic discipline. Students unsure about an area of concentration can explore diverse topics in the liberal arts. Through the required Christian Studies courses, students analyze biblical sources to obtain truth and engage in Christ-centered critical thinking about the Scriptures and theological issues.
Crown’s Christian General Studies online associate degree fulfills foundational educational needs. The program also prepares students for transferring into any of Crown’s Christ-centered bachelor’s degree programs.
