Bachelor of Liberal Studies

The bachelor's of liberal studies degree allows a student to follow a specific 36-credit interdisciplinary plan of study in one of four liberal studies concentrations. The remaining elective credits are to be used to fulfill at least one of the following: a concentration in educational studies, an additional concentration in liberal studies, or another major or minor. Free electives will be determined by these choices.


There are currently 11 interdisciplinary minors that offer a unique opportunity to meet students' research and educational needs. We encourage interested students to contact each minor coordinator directly for more information.
