General Studies Program
Complete your degree and change your perspective.
Build into Your Best Life
A degree can help your career. It also helps your mind. And at North Greenville, it opens up perspectives on living that can turn your everyday into your epic.
And, like all epics, it starts with the classics: philosophy, fine arts appreciation, and American History. Critical thinking, clear communication, complex problem-solving from a Christian perspective. That’s the 100% online General Studies degree from North Greenville.
Online courses focus on practical application of the material learned. Many of your fellow students are working adults and course activities give you an opportunity to apply what you’re learning to real life situations.
Senior Research Project
Students will research a real-world problem associated with their minor area of interest in the Senior Capstone course. In researching the problem, students will learn about problem solving and offer a possible solution to the real-world problem. This allows you to have a hands-on opportunity to walk through researching and writing about a topic in your field of interest.
Senior Portfolio Project
Students will design a portfolio that reflects their experiences, skills and personalities in the Senior Capstone course. You will have the opportunity to discover and reflect on your purpose, core values, and plans for the future. You will create SMART goals to help you launch your future after graduation.
Study Everything in General Studies
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
