Why Liberal Studies?

The flexible and interdisciplinary nature of the Liberal Studies major allows students to work closely with an academic advisor to create their own unique degree programs.  The Liberal Studies major offers a variety of internships and also serves an excellent arts and sciences major to complement teacher licensure programs in Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle School or Special Education.

Graduates with liberal studies degrees are very attractive to employers looking for workers whose education emphasizes multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary knowledge and skills.
