School of General Studies

The School of General Studies (GENS) oversees the University curriculum's "commons," the place where students and faculty with various specializations explore the world of knowledge, ideas, and issues, often in an interdisciplinary way. For those whose personal goals or career aspirations are not met by an existing academic program, General Studies offers a Liberal Studies (B.A.) degree. This program allows students, with guidance of two faculty and the Dean of General Studies, to shape an interdisciplinary course of study that meets their needs and interests.
