General Studies Major Concentrations
For students seeking a bachelor's degree in General Studies, the requirements for a concentration may be fulfilled by using a combination of credits earned by course work completed at regionally accredited institutions of higher learning, by examination, by portfolio assessment, by contract learning, by taking courses, or by approved non-collegiate instruction. Concentrations require a grade of "C" (2.0) in each course. Courses with grades of Pass are typically not acceptable in a concentration unless there is confirmation that Pass is equivalent to 2.0 (C) on a 4-point grading scale.
Some concentrations can be completed by taking Charter Oak State College courses exclusively; others require students to earn credits elsewhere in transfer. Concentrations marked with an asterisk (*) can be completed in entirety by taking courses offered at Charter Oak State College.
