Liberal Studies

A Liberal Studies degree is beneficial for students who enter college undecided of which baccalaureate degree program they want. This two-year associate degree program gives students two years to decide what bachelor’s degree program best suits them.

The liberal studies degree is the perfect option for transfer into a four-year degree program. Students may earn general education credits and decide on a focus like math, business, psychology, history, or other option. The student will work with his or her advisor to plan and choose course concentration credits that will easily transfer into a four-year degree program.

Liberal Studies 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 liberal studies 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.
