Descriptions of the Programs

The General Studies program at Southwestern Adventist University is designed for two categories of students: 1) First-time students who are exploring major options and 2) Students whose main goal is to earn a college degree with an area of emphasis but without specializing in a major or minor field.  Students will be able to choose from a wide selection of classes while meeting the requirements of the General Education Program.

The Interdisciplinary Studies program allows students, with planning, to enhance their education program by including an area of emphasis not offered on campus.  Students wishing to pursue an Interdisciplinary Studies degree must complete the program application process prior to admission into the program.

Southwestern’s Quality Enhancement Plan remains integral to the completion of a General Studies and Interdisciplinary Studies major.  All requirements for the QEP as they pertain to the B.A. and B.S. degrees will be completed by General Studies students.
