The General Studies certificate is designed for students who would like to take introductory courses before deciding on a technical diploma or associate degree program. It provides time to develop learning skills and clarify career/educational goals while earning credits that may be applied to a full-time WITC program.
General Studies graduates will be able to:
- Develop learning skills
- Clarify career/educational goals
- Recognize and be more aware of their abilities
- Complete general education requirements prior to choosing their program
- Match interests and abilities to today’s technical careers
- Improve their study habits, writing skills, academic performance, and employability skills
General Studies courses are available at each WITC campus (Ashland, New Richmond, Rice Lake, Superior) and the two outreach centers in Hayward and Ladysmith.
WITC is large enough to serve you but small enough to know you. The experienced faculty are knowledgeable, approachable, and eager to help. The sizes of your classes will allow for the attention you deserve.
Some credits may also be transferable to other technical colleges, the UW System, or private four-year colleges.
Apply the General Studies certificate credits toward Liberal Arts - Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees to increase your skills.
