The General Studies Diploma can serve as your interdisciplinary introduction to university studies. The two-year (60-credit) program allows you to customize your program of study by choosing from a wide range of courses to select those that match your interests and goals.
If you plan to continue on to complete a degree (BGS, BA, BBA, BCIS, BSc, etc.) once you have completed your diploma, it is highly recommended that you complete the first- and second-year requirements of the degree program. You can also use up to 45 transfer credits within the diploma.
The UFV General Studies program is a stepping stone into many different careers, depending on the way in which you customize your program of study.
Common fields that many General Studies graduates pursue include: elementary education, government and administrative support, community programming and outreach, aviation (for students with a Thematic Option in Aviation), and business.
