In the major, three areas of concentration are chosen by you with the approval of the program chair. These areas are not chosen haphazardly, but are interrelated when viewed in conjunction with the student’s educational goals.


Requirements for the B.S. in Liberal Studies

The B.S. is designed to be an intellectually coherent interdisciplinary concentration providing study in two professional disciplines as well as a related liberal arts area.

The credit requirements are the same as those listed above for the B.A. in Liberal Studies.

For the B.S. degree, two of the three concentrations are chosen from the departments of Economics and Management, Computer Science and Criminal Justice.

The third area of concentration may be selected from other departments or from approved academic programs such as Ethnic Studies or Women and Gender Studies.

Additional Graduation Requirements

All students must meet the University Graduation Requirements and complete a common core of studies, distributed among the different academic areas as detailed in the Common Core.
