Liberal Studies

The Major in Liberal Studies serves students whose intellectual interests and academic pursuits do not specifically fit one of the established majors offered by departments and programs in the college. Students pursuing the Major in Liberal Studies anchor their academic trajectory in an established field of knowledge, while simultaneously finding flexibility to self-design a program that reflects their individual and intellectual interests and academic goals.

Applications for the Major in Liberal Studies are endorsed by a member of the faculty and approved and, upon completion, certified by the LAS Associate Dean for Student Academic Affairs and the LAS Executive Assistant Dean for Student Academic Affairs.
