Applied Arts & Sciences
Leverage your occupational or technical credits into a B.A. in Applied Arts and Sciences from Georgian Court University. This program allows you to transfer and apply 30 to 48 of your occupational or technical credits toward a bachelor’s degree.
This program’s flexibility and excellence provides you with the academic training, intellectual skills, and liberal-arts-based education you need to advance your career in a way you might not have thought possible. It’s also possible to transfer up to 90 credits total (no more than 75 can come from two-year institutions), and earn this degree in as little as 30 credits from GCU.
You’ll graduate with the foundational degree that can propel you into a wide range of careers.
To earn this degree, students must successfully complete at least 120 credits, including General Education requirements and the major requirements below.
Interdisciplinary Module: 30 credits at the 300 or 400 level in two or three academic disciplines distributed as follows:
- Focus Area: 18 credits from one discipline.
- 12 additional credits from one or two other disciplines.
Focus Area may be selected from one of the following disciplines:
- business administration
- criminal justice
- digital communication
- exercise science, wellness, and sports
- graphic design
- integrative health
- religious studies
- social work
In many disciplines there are few evening offerings of 300- or 400-level courses. Prior to choosing disciplines for the interdisciplinary module requirement, students should consult with their advisor to ensure that sufficient offerings are likely to be available at times that suit the student’s needs.
The student may have to complete 100- or 200-level prerequisite courses prior to enrolling in the 300- or 400-level courses.
At least 15 of the 300- or 400-level credits in the interdisciplinary module must be taken at Georgian Court University.
All B.A. in Applied Arts and Sciences majors must complete the General Education program requirements listed in the catalog in addition to the requirements for the interdisciplinary module. A course cannot be used to satisfy both a General Education requirement and an interdisciplinary module requirement.
