Program Description

The Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies program allows students to create an individualized curriculum and experiences that align with their personal career interests. This approach is different from many traditional, discipline-based baccalaureate programs which are designed in part to prepare students for advanced work in a specific academic discipline-in history or biology, for example. This flexibility enables students to develop academic plans that meet the ever-changing requirements of the workforce.

Beyond satisfying the core curriculum, Liberal Studies majors are required to select a declare an Arts and Sciences minor related to their career interest, complete an internship, a capstone class, and electives. The department offers over 20 different minors in the areas of African American Studies, Biology, Criminal Justice, Education Specialties, Film, Homeland Security/Emergency Management, Psychology, Sociology, and Women’s and Gender Studies just to name a few.
