Bachelor's in Liberal Studies

Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary program that advances the pursuit of broad knowledge and integrative thinking in the academic tradition of the liberal arts.

The major allows students to delve into several interests and maintain maximum flexibility in course selection.  Instead of majoring in one particular discipline, students focus on two or three traditional liberal studies disciplines or self-proposed interdisciplinary concentrations.
