Liberal Studies

An Applied Baccalaureate in Liberal Studies is a great choice for students who have completed a two-year Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in a career- or technical-related field but who want a simple path to a four-year degree. Students in this program have already earned a credential
that prepares them for the workforce, and now they are ready to get a customized general education that teaches lifelong skills such as critical thinking, writing and problem solving.
