Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies degree program is designed for working adults. This degree offers you the convenience of online scheduling with personalized academic advising to guide you to graduation. A Liberal Studies bachelor of arts degree also gives students the ability to earn credit through College Level Examination Program (CLEP) testing in General Education areas, with a seminar-driven major. This degree program can even be completed 100% online.

Students enrolled in the Liberal Studies degree program benefit from taking a wide scope of subjects; attending seminar-formatted, student-driven classes that focus on a specific topic; and exploring events and attitudes through critical thinking and interaction with other adult students.

Students also pick a concentration related to an area that meets their professional or personal goals. Students take an active role in determining the direction and content of their learning. This program also can serve as a degree completion option for those with existing college credit.

Senior Capstone Information
The senior capstone is the capstone requirement of the program. It is a four credit hour project undertaken with a faculty member as the thesis adviser. 
Students are expected to integrate their thesis theme with their concentration courses.
