The Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree provides students flexibility in using a variety of college-level courses (generally 100-level or above) to design a two-year degree program in broad interdisciplinary areas. These courses can come from general education, academic, or collegiate-level professional-technical courses found in the college catalog to the meet Clatsop Community College’s general associate degree requirements.
The AGS can be tailored to your needs and interests while maintaining high general education standards. You will work closely with an academic advisor at Clatsop in designing your individual degree plan of study, including identifying 36 credits or more from a cluster of related courses. The cluster of courses should be set as soon as possible after enrollment, but no later than the term prior to the term in which you plan to graduate.
The college is in the process of identifying several pre-approved clusters representing common interests or non-OUS transfer plans. Clusters for Women's Studies and for Art have been defined. Contact student services/admissions for details.
Please note: students planning to transfer to a public four-year institution within Oregon should complete the AAOT degree, which is articulated statewide with the Oregon University System four-year colleges and universities.
