Liberal Studies (LIBST.BA)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies allows the student to develop an individualized plan of study in one area of concentration. The intent of this program is to allow the student to experience a more comprehensive approach in academic pursuits than is provided in the traditional major and to synthesize material from a variety of disciplines.

This program of study may prepare students for liberal arts graduate programs, and although it is not intended as prevocational, it will prepare students for entry level positions in professional areas requiring broad knowledge and skills in writing and critical thinking.
