Liberal studies is especially beneficial to, and a perfect fit for, students who enter college unsure of which baccalaureate degree program they want. Liberal studies. a two-year associate degree program, offers students two years to decide what bachelor’s degree program best suits them.
The liberal studies program is the perfect platform for transfer into a four-year degree program. Students may earn general education credits and decide on a focus (math, business, psychology, history, and so on). The plan that the student makes with his or her advisor will be to earn concentration credits that will easily transfer into a four-year degree program.
Internships and Experiential Learning
Not all education happens in the classroom. Certain lessons can only be learned through direct hands-on experiences outside of the classroom with real world experiences in the field. Internships and other field experiences give students the opportunity to connect one-on-one with faculty, fellow students and other professionals. Students will acquire leadership and management skills, professional growth and personal fulfillment that can’t be gained in the classroom.
