Academic Pathways - General Education

An academic pathway is an advising guide to help students prepare for their intended bachelor’s degree major. By following the course of study for either an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science pathway, students will have the required general education courses to move into a four-year bachelor’s program of study. A pathway is not a major and will not be represented on the diploma.

Students should meet with an advisor in the Center for Academic Advising who can guide them in selecting and planning for an appropriate academic pathway. Students are also encouraged to investigate specific course requirements for the bachelor’s program they are intending to pursue.

The College of Coastal Georgia offers three academic pathways: General Studies, Health Professions, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).


General Studies Pathway
Associate of Arts or Associate of Science, Pathway – General Studies

Students have the option to either pursue an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science in Core Curriculum with the general studies pathway. This pathway provides students with a breadth of course options and flexibility as they move to the baccalaureate level. Students will acquire essential career skills – critical thinking, problem-solving, attention to detail, and writing – that will increase their marketability.

Students who follow this pathway need to meet the below requirements as well as those for graduation listed in the College Catalog.


Health Professions Pathway
Associate of Science, Pathway – Health Professions

The Health Professions pathway provides students with a curriculum that equips them with the necessary information and skills to support employers in a variety of known and evolving healthcare fields to diagnose, treat, heal and record a wide variety of diseases and medical conditions. Employment of healthcare occupations is projected to grow due to an aging population and because federal health insurance reform should increase the number of individuals who have access to medical insurance.

Students who follow this pathway need to meet the below requirements as well as those for graduation listed in the College Catalog.


STEM Pathway
Associate of Science, Pathway – STEM

The STEM Pathway includes science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Areas of study in this pathway will prepare students for transfer degrees and professions in engineering, software development, information management, coding, medicine, science research, teaching, data science, and statistics. The College of Coastal Georgia also provides a strong foundation for students wanting to pursue engineering through the Regents Engineering Pathway Program that paves the way for students to continue their studies at four-year institutions.

Students who follow this pathway need to meet the below requirements as well as those for graduation listed in the College Catalog.


All general education courses meet the transfer-level quality accreditation standards defined by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on College Principles of Accreditation in Standard 6.2.a (Faculty qualifications), Core Requirement 9.1 (Program content); Core Requirement 9.3 (General education requirements), and Standard 10.8 (Evaluating and awarding academic credit).
