The Liberal Studies Concentration offers the broadest education across all domains of knowledge while also allowing students to pursue specific areas of interest. Students take courses in humanities, creative writing, fine art, psychology, business, queer studies, urban studies, and more. This breadth of study assists students in becoming independent lifelong learners with an ability to think critically and creatively about the social issues that influence their world. Students who do not select a specialized area of concentration are automatically declared Liberal Studies students. This degree path prepares students for careers and graduate study in a wide range of disciplines.
The Liberal Studies Concentration allows students considerable freedom in designing their educational program and encourages students to be active agents in defining the parameters of their concentration. There are no set core courses and students have maximum flexibility in shaping their degree plan in order to meet their individual goals.
