Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

Today's culture is rapidly evolving. Information access is developing exponentially. Industries are globally interconnected. Scholarly inquiry is advancing so rapidly that today’s new ideas become obsolete. Employers are looking for people who can work collaboratively, can communicate effectively, and have acquired a broad range of knowledge and information literacy skills. Today’s society is in need of citizens who can reason carefully, possess scientific literacy, and can engage in public debate of critical ideas.

Essential 21st century skills in communication, problem solving, information technology, and critical thinking are engaged throughout the courses in this degree. Civic inquiry and interdisciplinary study are fundamental elements of the curriculum. Students are prepared for a range of elective courses through the degree requirements of an interdisciplinary seminar, advanced writing, and civic engagement courses. In addition, each student chooses a focused topic for their culminating capstone project.

A Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Landmark College is designed to prepare its graduates to either enter the workforce or further their studies. As our graduates move through adulthood as life-long learners, they will be prepared to think deeply and critically, to solve problems, and to live fully.
