General Studies majors are encouraged to acquire a broad experience of world cultures; engage with the arts, humanities, natural and social sciences; and develop the objectivity of mind that will allow a critical analysis of and ethical response to the needs of our world.
Chowan University’s Department of Genearl Studies is uniquely designed to allow students the freedom to establish a specialized major that is directly devoted to a student’s individual interests and needs. These students can develop a personal concentration of studies tailor-made for those whose interests, plans, or abilities overlap multiple academic departments, in order to learn beyond the traditional boundaries of higher education that limit most other institutions.
For that student seeking a more individualized interdisciplinary study, you can create a unique degree program through the integration of courses from three or more disciplines into a single concentration. The areas of studies will come from: Management, Technology and the Environment, Social Interaction, Diversity, and the Individual, Culture and the Arts, and Society, Traditions, and the Nation.
