Liberal Studies (B.S.)

The Liberal Studies program offers a broadly-based curriculum and a wide range of options in lieu of the more specialized coursework required in other major programs. Although 48 credit hours are required to major in Liberal Studies, the expanded (hence "liberal") choices permit students to design much of their own educational structure beyond the General Education Program (GEP).

The Liberal Studies Program invites you to explore your purposes with considerable flexibility; it also impels you to inquire broadly across the curriculum. The independence fostered by the self-designed major carries with it an obligation to assume primary responsibility for your own learning. The program is not for everyone, especially not for students who lack self-discipline and who require a high degree of structure.
