Liberal Studies Program Details

If you want the flexibility to pursue your own purpose, consider Liberal Studies.

Designed for students who desire a broad-based education that provides general knowledge in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, the Liberal Studies major provides you with the flexibility to pursue an interdisciplinary program through either the traditional areas of the liberal arts and sciences or by creating their own cross-departmental interdisciplinary theme.

As a Liberal Studies major, you will choose a focus area—Biology, English, Fine Arts, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Religious Studies, Psychology, Sociology, or Spanish—or you may petition to focus on a discipline not listed here, or choose several disciplines.

In addition, you will select two disciplines (other than your focus area) for your elective courses.

Through this interdisciplinary curriculum, you'll acquire critical thinking, analytical, and writing skills.

Liberal studies students experience breadth as well as depth in their coursework, so you'll be prepared for a changing future and a well-rounded life. 

Skills Learned

  • Know the major ideas/concepts/key events in their chosen focus field and in one of the elective fields
  • Analyze an issue or problem using more than one disciplinary approach
  • Synthesize material from several disciplines around one issue or problem
