The Liberal Studies programs (Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science) are the most flexible degree programs available at the college. That flexibility allows students to design individualized academic experiences meeting their unique educational interests and career goals. Each of the degree programs in Liberal Studies is structured around a core of multi- and inter-disciplinary courses that combines the methods and insights of the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences with the practical aspects of professional education.
• To prepare students to become lifelong learners in both their professional and personal lives;
• To emphasize the inter-relatedness of liberal and professional education;
• To encourage intellectual, social, and ethical growth through the critical examination of works in art, science, philosophy, and literature; and
• To prepare students to be successful citizens and leaders in a global community.
While only students in the bachelor of science program are required to take a professional internship, all Liberal Studies students are encouraged to take advantage of such experiences.
