Program Overview

The Bachelor of Arts in General Studies at York University is an interdepartmental program allowing students to build their own degree plan based on interests that may not be met by any single major or department. General Studies majors combine primary and secondary concentrations with their electives to create a tailor-made degree. The primary and secondary areas of concentration must be taken from different departments.

The Bachelor of Arts in General Studies is a great program for students who are transferring in credits and/or are wanting to include credits from other college programs to engage in degree completion.
