General studies is a program designed for students who are undecided about a major. If you're not sure of what career path you want yet, then general studies could be a viable option for your major.
Statistics show that 75% of students will change their majors during their academic careers, which clearly indicates that many students aren't sure what they want to do. The problem with choosing a major and then switching to another one is that classes may count for one major, but not for another. By declaring yourself undecided and choosing the general studies program, you can take courses that will count for whatever major you eventually choose.
When you choose general studies, you have three options: general studies science and technology, general studies liberal arts and general studies education.
