Majors & More

Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies major is an interdisciplinary program in which students pursue broad interests or develop a specialized program in areas where majors are not currently offered. It encourages skills for responsible citizenship, including critical thinking, self-knowledge, and interdisciplinary understanding, and is appropriate for students who wish to participate fully in shaping their university education to their needs and interests.

Career Directions

  • The Liberal Studies major by its nature does not aim at a single career path. Rather, it offers a meaningful liberal education to students who 1) have broad career goals, 2) already have a career and wish to advance it with a bachelorís degree, 3) seek to enrich their lives through a classic liberal education, 4) wish to prepare for graduate or professional study.

  • Arts

  • Human Services
  • Law
