Liberal Studies

B.S. or B.A. Degree

Liberal Studies provides the possibility for a program of study to meet educational goals not exactly satisfied by other academic programs. There are possibilities of three or more minors which may be developed into a coherent program of study. Students prepare a statement in which they list their educational objectives and explain how a particular combination of minors will help them to achieve them. A degree plan is developed and the complete proposal is signed by the faculty advisor who will oversee the program. The form needed to begin this process may be obtained from the Vice President for Academic Affairs Office. It is returned, by the student, to the Vice President for Academic Affairs for final approval before being delivered to the Registrar's Office. A 2.000 G.P.A. is required in each minor for graduation.

The Experiential Component requirements are listed in the Catalog for each major. For this major, the Experiential Component must be chosen from those listed in the majors that parallel one of the student's three Liberal Studies Emphasis areas.

A minimum of 54 hours is required to complete the Liberal Studies major, with a total of thirty hours of 300-400 level course work.
