An Associate of Science (AS) Degree in Individualized Studies is the right program if you:
- are interested in a particular career field as well as liberal arts & sciences
- would like to explore a particular career area
- are undecided about your future career
- want general education courses 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 AS 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. You can construct your own pathway 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 Southeast Technical for two years, and then transfer to another college that has agreed to accept this AS degree.
