BA IN LIBERAL STUDIES — LANDMARK’S FIRST BACHELOR’S DEGREE!

We take great pride in the fact that nine out of every 10 Landmark students go on to
pursue baccalaureate degree studies. In response to requests by our students, we will
now offer a new Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies at the College — the first in our
history! This new four-year degree ensures interested students can receive a total college
experience that fully integrates Landmark’s innovative learning strategies and use of
assistive technology — while giving them the critical thinking, communications, problem
solving and decisions skills employers value. The degree also provides an excellent
foundation for graduate study.

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN LIFE SCIENCES

This new, interdisciplinary major brings together all the fields of science involving the
study of living environments that support life. It is designed to prepare Landmark students
for the fast-growing career opportunities in STEM-related fields: Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math. And no other college in the country offers the depth of expertise
in teaching science to students with learning differences!

Graduates of the program can go on to pursue their bachelor’s degree studies in a
science-related major or begin entry-level jobs in the life sciences. Strong advisement and
counseling will ensure students “stay on track” to achieve their career and academic
goals. Student/faculty research will offer interested students the opportunity for
additional, in-depth “hands-on” experiences.

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE/GAMING

Our new AS in Computer Science/Gaming features courses in interactive design
and development, computer programming, web design, interactive story telling,
3-D development, data structures and algorithms. It will prepare students who learn
differently to continue their studies in such fields as computer science, game design,
cybersecurity, informatics, mobile app development and geographic information systems.

Our curriculum — modeled after the framework of the Association for Computing
Machinery (ACM) and the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) —
encourages our students to explore a variety of options in the software or digital games
industry to determine the “best fit” for their strengths, interests and goals.
