Department of Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies Department offers courses in nine disciplines that explore the fundamental questions about what it means to be human.

We offer both introductory and upper division courses that allow students to experience a wide range of offerings, from Ancient and Medieval Western culture to Environmental Literature to Introduction to Political Science to Diversity Psychology.

Small classes at Landmark College allow for personal attention from faculty, and several courses in Liberal Studies include a significant experiential component: Cultural Anthropology, Civic Engagement, Personal History, and all of our Study Abroad options allow students to engage in material in a variety of ways. Our faculty are passionate about what they teach and they design courses to engage students, create a supportive classroom environment, and share that passion.
