Open the door to Possibility 

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree program in Liberal Studies prepares students for a career or
graduate education, while providing personal enrichment. Students are exposed to a broad-based
liberal arts curriculum and take coursework in several subject areas in the Humanities, Arts, and
Social Sciences to create a multidisciplinary degree with a concentration that meets their
individual educational, vocational, or personal interests and goals. A variety of coursework is
offered in several areas of concentration including Pre-Law, Child Development and
Entrepreneurship. Students also have the flexibility to create their own concentration using
courses across the curriculum. In addition, there is an opportunity for service learning or field
experience. Students who major in liberal studies develop transferable skills that are valued by
employers. These skills include effective writing, oral communication, critical thinking,
problem-solving, and the ability to research and analyze information. A liberal studies degree
opens the possibility for a wide range of careers. In today’s information driven economy,
employers are looking for interdisciplinary thinkers with broad knowledge of the world rather
than a narrow focus and expertise in a single discipline.
