PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The BA General Studies programme provides students with the opportunity to pursue relatively in-depth studies in more than one field of interest. 

The programme allows students to obtain a less specialized educational experience with fewer credits required in any one subject area. Students can therefore combine courses selected from existing degree programmes (Psychology, Guidance & Counselling, Programme & Project Management, Community Development, Theology, Education, etc.)
