Through its curriculum, programs, academic support and advising, the Department of Undergraduate Studies and Student Success provides IUP students with courses and services designed to enhance the development and success of all students.
General Studies, BA
In the General Studies program, you can choose to make friends and network with other students who share your interests. You also have the option to complete much of your coursework online or away from the IUP campus. Regardless to how you design your individualized program of study, many opportunities are available to enrich your student experience. As well, the flexibility of our program enables you to choose a minor to supplement your area of interest.
The General Studies program is ideal for students who don’t want to be limited by one specific subject, or for those who would like to tailor their undergraduate coursework toward a specific post-baccalaureate curriculum. Graduates from our program have found success in all walks of life.
General Studies, AA
The Associate of Arts degree with a major in general studies is designed for the nontraditional or adult learner.
