About the Program
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 Provost Office. It is returned, by the student, to the Provost for final approval before being delivered to the Office of the Registrar. A 2.0 GPA is required in each minor for graduation. 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 coursework.
