The degree options of the Liberal Studies program let students apply prior recognized educational and professional experiences that may not be transferable to other degree programs. Because of the unique nature of the program, an individual interested in obtaining the Liberal Studies degree should consult with the Admissions Office to discuss his/ her educational background and to plan an educational goal. Students must work closely with their academic advisor throughout their studies to discuss course selections. It is also strongly recommended that early in the program students visit the Career Planning Office to help them identify their own personal and career goals.
