The General Studies Major
At Marietta College
The General Studies major is open only to Continuing Education students. The requirements for this major are twenty four (24) credit hours in one department (for this purpose, Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management and Sport Management are considered one department), and twenty four (24) credit hours drawn from two additional departments.
The second set of 24 hours must have at least nine hours from each department. In addition, each student, in consultation with the registrar and a faculty member in the student’s primary concentration, will identify an appropriate capstone course (minimum 1 credit) that will serve as a culminating experience and provide an opportunity for synthesis of knowledge and skills obtained throughout the course of study.
