Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies major assumes that a well educated person must explore the rich diversity of the human condition as it has been and is reflected through the study of the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and fine arts. Anchored to excellence in writing, communications and critical thinking, the Liberal Studies major prepares students for a world and careers in constant flux and transition. Liberal Studies equips students who are not well served by a highly career-oriented major to learn what they will need to know to provide leadership in the increasing global community of the 21st century.
