Liberal Studies

Liberal Studies - the "triple-minor major" degree program!

Liberal Studies students do three minors, instead of a traditional major and minor. We have students doing minors in, e.g. Business Foundations, English, and Spanish; Biology, Philosophy, and Art History; Supply Chain Logistics, Economics, and Global and International Studies; Studio Arts, Art History, and Anthropology; Classical Studies, Law, Values and Policy, and National Security Studies ... well, you get the idea! There are over 40,000 possible combinations of minors! One of them is probably just right for you!

In key research of over 300 corporate CEO’s:
  • Nearly all employers surveyed (95 percent) say they give hiring preference to college graduates with skills that will enable them to contribute to innovation in the workplace
  • Nearly all those surveyed (93 percent) say that a demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems is more important than the choice of undergraduate major
  • More than 9 in 10 of those surveyed say it is important that those they hire demonstrate ethical judgment and integrity; intercultural skills; and the capacity for continued new learning
Liberal Studies, with its choice of three minors, can give you the skills and knowledge to succeed in the global economy or in your own backyard. Explore your options!
