Bachelor in Liberal Studies

General

Program Description

The Liberal Studies program is part of the College’s Department of Interdisciplinary Studies and is based on the development of an individualized course of study by a student and his/her advisor. This approach allows students to tailor their coursework to some degree in order to meet their personal interests and needs. Apart from the basic liberal arts requirements, students are free to select a major percentage of their courses within elective categories. Students are given significant responsibility for planning a coherent study program and afforded the freedom and opportunity to sample many disciplines and career areas.
