What We Do

The B.A. in liberal studies is an interdisciplinary program that allows you to select your major courses from among those offered by departments across the college.

If your intellectual interests do not fall neatly into a traditional department or discipline, the B.A. in liberal studies is an ideal choice. In consultation with the program director, you will develop a plan of study that incorporates courses from multiple disciplines relating to a topic or theme that you choose. In your senior seminar, you will complete a paper or project that ties your coursework together.
