The liberal studies major is designed for students who desire a broad-based education that provides general knowledge in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences.
In today's rapidly changing world, a majority of the careers needed in the next decade will be in areas no one has even imagined today. The critical thinking, analytical, and writing skills liberal studies majors acquire will prepare them well for the dynamic workforce of the future and careers not yet in existence.
Students will meet with their advisors to develop a written plan, listing the sequence of courses that will provide in-depth study toward a definable set of learning objectives.
*Focus area courses are at the 200-level or above. A focus area is one liberal studies discipline or a specialized interdisciplinary theme combining courses from several disciplines; e.g., the Renaissance, the African-American experience.
**Five/six courses in two liberal studies disciplines at the 200 level or above other than the focus discipline, split 3/2 or 3/3. Students who elect to take both LIS 350 and LIS 351 need take only 5 elective courses.
