Interested in specializing beyond a single major? Engage with the major issues and complex problems that shape our lives from multidisciplinary perspective.
The Liberal Studies program is for students with curiosity that extends beyond a single discipline, or who are undecided about their major, but who wish to acquire college expertise in preparation for the global world and workforce.
Students explore current topics from multiple vantage points, learn to integrate knowledge across disciplines, and apply diverse approaches and methods to contemporary challenges.
Coursework stems from the four major areas of the liberal arts, including a cross section of the humanities (e.g., history, philosophy, writing), social sciences (e.g., anthropology, economics, sociology), natural sciences (e.g., math, biology, psychology), and the arts (e.g., art history, studio art, music), and is structured around local and global problem-solving that seeks to actively engage students in learning.
