: "This article is about the degree. For other meanings, see the disambiguation page General Studies."

A Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree is an undergraduate degree, offered by some universities in the Western world. It is very similar to a Bachelor of Arts degree, although there are often fewer requirements for studies in humanities and social sciences. In many cases, the Bachelor of General Studies is offered as a degree program specifically for adult learners that have delayed or interrupted their studies, and typically offers matriculants the ability to design their own curriculum. This flexibility provides those who changed their field of study to complete a bachelor degree without fulfilling the requirements for a major.
