Individualized Studies

The Individualized Studies Associate of Science (AS) degree is, in part, for students who intend to transfer to complete a bachelor's degree. This 60 credit degree allows learners to develop a specific education plan to update their skills. This personalized degree gives students the opportunity to focus on specialized career interests not offered in the college's structured degree programs, to combine and integrate a number of subjects into a degree program, and/or to build on a current area of study or expertise. Students work collaboratively with faculty and staff to create a degree plan that meets individualized educational needs. Students who need flexibility or who are working full time appreciate the online and evening options. Students who enroll in the Individualized Studies program will complete 30 technical credits and 30 general education credits (in at least six goal areas of the MnTC).
