Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies Program is an interdisciplinary major which offers a degree program under the College of Humanities leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies. The Liberal Studies major is designed to provide a broad, undergraduate liberal arts education, with a balance among the language arts, natural sciences and mathematics, humanities, visual and performing arts, and social sciences.

Services We Offer

The Liberal Studies Program offers a wide variety of support services in order to advise and mentor new and continuing students towards graduation.  Liberal Studies majors, Humanities minors, Sustainability minors, and Russian minors can take advantage of the following services:

  • Academic Advisement (General Education and Major/Minor)
  • University Policy and Procedure Advisement
  • Credential Admission Preparation (ITEP)
  • Graduation Planning

Students interested in a Liberal Studies major are encouraged to first complete a workshop prior to scheduling an advisement appointment with an advisor.  To find the appropriate workshop, select “Workshops” at the top of this page.

Students interested in declaring a Humanities minor, Sustainability minor, or Russian minor may call the Liberal Studies Program immediately to schedule an advisement appointment.

FALL 2016 HUM 391

HUM 391

This seminar will explore the concept of the intertext by analyzing works that “speak” to each other in the form of literature, cinema, music, and opera—for a body is a body, but only voices are capable of love. Once students establish conversations happening among texts, they will be required to separate from the inferno what is not inferno, then make it endure and give it space. The course will culminate in leaving a record of the adverse miracle.
