    take in your career, a General Studies diploma is the perfect place to start. If you think you may want to continue your education and

    complete a degree in education, nursing or the arts, our liberal arts classes will transfer easily to other programs at Lethbridge College

    as well as many colleges and universities throughout North America.

    We also offer flexible course selections, flexible delivery methods (blended and online) and personal timetables that let you create an

    Career Pathways program. This program will enhance your proficiency in writing and math and provide you with the skills necessary

  • [The General Studies program] opened the door to realizing what I wanted to do. After finishing the program I went to the University of Lethbridge and finished my Bachelor of Arts in psychology, sociology and anthropology. All three of these streams I had exposure to at the college and fell in love.
