Liberal Arts

The Liberal Arts degree provides a broad, interdisciplinary approach to ways of knowing in the areas of arts, humanities, social science, and natural science. This versatile degree will facilitate students who plan to pursue a baccalaureate degree (most courses transfer as general education requirements) or to advance their employability level to be marketable in public or private institutions.
