The Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies

The fundamental program requirement is that each student 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, and also demonstrates a significant concentration of study in two or more distinct academic areas.

 Although it should be possible for a student to enter Husson University with an approved IPS, it is recommended that an incoming student 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. It is expected that the approved program of study be filed with the Dean of Science and Humanities prior to beginning course work as a third year student (>60 Cr. Hr.). In the event that program approval is sought after beginning the third year's work, an academic program totaling more than 120 credit hours may be required in order to satisfy all requirements.
