The objective of the Liberal Studies major is to allow students to creatively combine courses for a breadth of exposure to liberal studies or to probe more deeply into one or two specific areas within our majors. Students work closely with an academic advisor to develop a specific direction for their degree program. Students completing a major in Liberal Studies choose either the Literature and Creative Writing Concentration, or the Leadership for Service and Change Concentration (with a defined focus area). Students work with their advisor to develop an individualized learning plan.
