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.
