The Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies Degree

A Liberal Studies or Liberal Arts degree program is a diverse, multi-disciplinary degree program. The objective is to develop students in the humanities, arts and social sciences as communicators and critical thinkers. A liberal arts degree can open doors in a wide variety of career fields including those in government, education, business, and more.

Each Liberal Studies major must complete an approved program of study having no fewer than 120 credit hours of college level work that demonstrates a broad base in the traditional liberal arts as well as a significant concentration of study in two or more distinct academic areas. Students opting for this program are assigned an advisor to guide them in choosing the areas most appropriate for their interests and talents.


What is Liberal Studies

Students interested in a liberal studies degree should enroll in one of Husson's traditional programs (or elect the Undeclared option) so that the various opportunities and options available within the program guidelines can be explored with the help of a knowledgeable faculty advisor. An approved program of study should be filed with the Dean of the College of Science and Humanities prior to beginning course work as a third-year student (>60 Cr. Hr.). If program approval is sought after beginning the third year's work,  more than 120 credit hours may be required in order to satisfy all requirements.
