Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies program recognizes individual needs and interests of students by allowing much of the course work beyond the Core Curriculum to reflect elective choices. This program provides students with a broad degree of flexibility so that students may tailor their studies to their goals or interests. Students may combine the Liberal Studies degree with a certificate program to create an individualized program that suits their career goals. Students with large numbers of transfer credits outside the core requirements are best accommodated in this program.
