The interrelatedness of all knowledge lies at the heart of a liberal arts education. Much of the excitement of learning stems from the discovery of truth in interactive disciplines. The Liberal Arts major affords students the opportunity to put together a broad program of study that stimulates and satisfies intellectual growth yet affords adequate concentration in two academic areas to acquire in-depth knowledge. The Liberal Arts major consists of at least 36 credit hours earned in two of the following groupings of emphasis, with no fewer than 18 hours in each emphasis (You may select only one from each emphasis grouping below.):

  • Agriculture or Biology or Chemistry or Environmental Science
  • Psychology or History or Political Science
  • English or Foreign Language
  • Theatre Arts and Visual Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Philosophy or Religious Studies

Students not earning a minor in Teacher Education or Educational Studies: The Experiential Component requirements are listed in the Catalog for each major. For this major, the Experiential Component must be chosen from those listed in the major that parallels one of the student’s Liberal Arts Concentration areas.

At least 50% of the courses in each concentration of the Liberal Arts major must be upper level (i.e., 300 and above) and cannot include courses taken to fulfill the foundations coursework of the liberal arts requirements. A 2.0 grade point average is required in each emphasis area for graduation.
