The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies Curriculum

Bachelor of Arts students complete 121 credits from varying disciplines to earn their degree.

The B.A. in Liberal Studies offers a broad-based liberal arts program in the first two years that capitalizes on general education courses, which help students build the foundation for further study in advanced level courses in the liberal arts disciplines. Students are able to select courses around specific interests while engaging with a curriculum that is integrated and experiential and that capitalizes on the notion that true learning can be made tangible.
