About the Program
The liberal studies major allows the student a major composed of various disciplines rather than one discipline only. It emphasizes breadth, while requiring a concentration of 15 credits in a single discipline. It is intended that, by broadening the student’s cultural perspective, heightening the student’s analytical powers, and providing models for understanding experience, the liberal studies major will make a valuable contribution to whatever vocation the student elects. It may be taken along with vocational courses, or as a second major, or as preparation for a graduate or professional degree.
