Individual Studies

This AS in Individual Studies degree will allow students studying in the Humanities to enroll in a combination of theatre, music and art coursework in preparation for a baccalaureate degree. With the flexibility in design, students will be able to explore the various performance/applied humanities curriculum offered by the college. Students will also have the option to enroll in Business courses to provide a management/marketing focus to their studies. The program will prepare students for transfer to four year institutions into a program of their design not currently offered by the college. Students will have obtained the necessary SUNY general education coursework and be allowed to customize their remaining coursework based on desired transfer school and/or SUNY Transfer path. This degree will allow students with substantive specialized military credits to obtain their associates and move to a similar baccalaureate program without loss of credit. This degree will allow returning adult students with a variety of earned credit to obtain their associates and move to a similar baccalaureate program without loss of credit. This degree may allow students who transferred without obtaining their degree from SUNY Adirondack to reverse transfer their credits and obtain an associate's degree - in cases where a student may have changed their major or SUNY Adirondack has changed degree requirements. This degree will allow entreprenurial students a broad based liberal arts and sciences foundation and the ability to customize their coursework in support of their area of interest.
