The General Studies Program is unique in that it attempts to meet the academic needs of QCC career programs, four-year transfer institutions, and area employers. It has been designed to develop broad-based academic and employability skills. It provides a comprehensive, responsive, directed academic experience in which students identify educational and career choices, develop individualized career plans (CAPS), and implement career pathways leading to further education or careers.
In addition, the QCC General Studies Program has articulation and transfer agreements with numerous colleges and universities. The General Studies Program allows students to tailor the selection or courses to meet the requirements of a transfer institution. It also provides students with the opportunity to tailor a program of study to meet specific professional/ career competencies.
The Health Care Option offers students the opportunity to prepare for QCC’s (or any other college’s) Health Care Programs. In addition, students will be well-prepared to transfer to a baccalaureate institution in science based programs. The Program’s emphasis on science offers students a strong academic foundation which will transfer to a four year school or to enter the workforce. Areas of study include biology, chemistry, pharmacology and pathophysiology. In addition, courses in English, mathematics and the humanities strengthen the development of students’ general education skills. Together, these courses give students a broad background in science and prepare them for further study.
