Many new professional opportunities require college preparation of a broad and extensive scope. The Liberal Studies program offers students a chance to design an academic program appropriate to a student’s special career or professional goal. In this Bachelor of Arts degree, students learn from various courses of study with a focus on social sciences, arts, and humanities. The program is interdisciplinary with courses offered through various departments or divisions of the University. Available for students who desire or require more flexibility than is available in other major programs, this program may be particularly helpful for the student who is preparing for professional or specialized graduate school.
