University Studies - BS, Liberal Arts Concentration
The College of Liberal Arts offers a degree in University Studies with a concentration in Liberal Arts. The degree is intended to provide students the flexibility to create individualized degree plans in the college. The format also provides additional opportunities for study in the College of Liberal Arts when there is restricted admission to specific departments. The University Studies in Liberal Arts is a unique degree plan that consists of a foundational knowledge of Liberal Arts as a discipline, advanced work in social sciences and humanities, and two minors uniquely chosen by each student.
The 21-credit-hour concentration is uniquely administered by the college, rather than by a department, and includes coursework drawn from all 12 college departments and six interdisciplinary programs. The degree, although B.S., requires a year of college-level foreign language and an additional 12 hours of communication, literature, and social science.
A student enrolled in the University Studies concentration of Liberal Arts may not pursue a double major or a double degree.
