Welcome to Liberal Studies

    Faculty Photo May 2017

Liberal Studies is an exciting and intellectually challenging interdisciplinary major that provides students with a unique opportunity to acquire and integrate knowledge from the humanities and arts, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. Liberal Studies students explore the methods, arguments, assumptions, and forms of interaction within and between these three areas. They become well-rounded persons, critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, and culturally sensitive citizens.


Students Speak About Liberal Studies:

     There are two paths to the B.A. in Liberal Studies. For students seeking to teach in elementary schools, the Elementary Education Plan provides an excellent preparation for admission to a multiple-subject teaching credential program. For students planning careers in middle or high school teaching or in many fields other than education, the Interdisciplinary Thematic Plan provides the opportunity to choose a personalized set of courses devoted to the study of a specific interest.
