General Studies Degree Requirements

Each of EKU's five colleges offers a General Studies major. Students graduating with this major will receive a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in General Studies. Students pursuing this degree must complete 18 hours of course work offered by the college that will confer the degree. Courses taken to satisfy General Education requirements will NOT be applied to these 18 hours.

  • Completion of any Pre-College Curriculum (PCC) and/or developmental course requirements;
  • Completion of General Education and University course requirements;
  • Complete a minimum of 120 semester credit hours, with at least 42 hours at the 300 level or above;
  • A 2.00 GPA in EKU work at the 100 level and above in courses attempted for grade, whether or not used toward meeting degree requirements;
  • An overall GPA of 2.00 or higher in combined transfer work and EKU work;
  • At least 32 hours to be counted toward graduation must be taken at EKU;
  • At least 30 of the last 36 hours must be taken at EKU;
