Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

A flexible, interdisciplinary degree for motivated students in the 21st Century.

Today's culture is rapidly evolving. Information access is developing exponentially. Industries are globally interconnected. Knowledge itself is changing so rapidly that today's new ideas quickly become obsolete. In this marketplace, employers are looking for people who can work collaboratively, can communicate effectively, and have been schooled in a broad range of knowledge and knowledge acquisition skills. 

A Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Landmark College offers students the opportunity to train for such a fast-paced environment. While any degree must have, by necessity, a utilitarian purpose, schools offering a liberal arts degree also bear the weight of the ethical mandate to prepare an informed citizenry to make moral decisions and undertake examined inquiry. 

Essential 21st century skills in communication, problem solving, information technology, and critical thinking are incorporated into required courses. Civic inquiry and an emphasis on collaboration with people holding different perspectives are also integrated into coursework. Experiential learning is embedded in overall course design, as well as highlighted in the degree requirements of field study, the interdisciplinary seminar, advanced writing and communication, and the capstone course. Students interested in the B.A. option will have the ability to declare their interest after their first semester of successful completion of coursework.

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies offers a breadth of courses in the liberal arts with added curricular requirements that allow for depth of study. The degree has flexibility of content in the disciplines of English, Communications, Humanities, Fine and Performing Arts, and Social Sciences. It offers broad elective choices in other departments, such as Mathematics and Computer Science, Business, Natural Sciences, and World Languages, and is designed to prepare its graduates to begin work after graduation or to further their studies.

At Landmark College, we have successfully prepared students to pursue baccalaureate degrees in the liberal arts for nearly three decades. On average, sixty percent of our students go on to earn bachelor's degrees in the liberal arts. This degree offers even greater opportunities and options for our students who find that Landmark is their college of choice.
