An Associate of Science (AS) Degree in Individualized Studies is the right program if you:
- are interested in a specific career field or want to explore a particular career area
- are undecided about your future career
- want general education courses in the Liberal Arts & Sciences that can transfer to any Minnesota State system college or university
By allowing you to combine and integrate a number of subjects into a degree program, the Associate of Science degree in Individualized Studies will allow you to work toward completing the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) and build on current areas of expertise and experiences.
A 2-year Associate of Science Degree in Individualized Studies is designed around 40 credits of coursework from the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum package plus 20 credits from a career-focused pathway. Working with your advisor, you can construct your own degree by selecting classes from these fields:
- Human services
- Trade & Technical
- Liberal Arts
The Associate of Science degree in Individualized Studies is designed to provide a full complement of Liberal Arts and Science courses transferrable to any Minnesota State system college or university. Typically, students enroll at Minnesota State College Southeast for two years, and then transfer to another college that has agreed to accept this AS degree.
