Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide an individualized education, based in the tradition of the liberal arts (the humanities, the arts, languages, mathematics, and natural and social sciences).

This program provides a unique opportunity for students to combine fields of study and self-construct specialty programs in areas for which the university does not grant degrees. This enables the student to pursue broad interests or to develop specialized program in a discipline unavailable as an undergraduate degree at the University.
