Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 16, 2007
Drexel University Online, a pioneer in Internet-based education programs, announces the launch of the online Bachelor of Science degree in General Studies - Individualized Studies. This new program will allow students to tailor the program to their chosen area of study.
Students who enroll in this program have a variety of academic backgrounds, and may apply their credit hours from other institutions toward this multi-disciplinary degree. Through the general studies major, students can create an interdisciplinary program to meet their individual educational goals or to prepare for a particular job or career. "Individualized Studies students are generally self-directed and want a program they can tailor to their personal and professional interests," said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic affairs director at Drexel Online.
Those in the General Studies - Individualized Studies track will work with their academic advisors to select a specialization within the concentration aligned to their academic and professional goals. This program is designed for students who wish to gain a breadth of knowledge in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences fields.
Working adults, enrolled in this program can take a term off during a busy period at work without losing momentum toward the completion of their degree. Since credit can be earned for prior studies, this degree is ideal for those who want to transfer from programs they may be taking.
Applications for Drexel's online Bachelor of Science in General Studies degree are now being accepted. For more information about this online program, visit Drexel's online degree website, e-mail, or call (877) 215-0009.
