Is Liberal Studies the Program for Me?

Here are some types of situations that might apply to you.  If you answer “Yes” to any of the statements, Liberal Studies might be the Major best suited to your needs.

  • I am interested in the unique qualities of an interdisciplinary, theme-focused liberal studies degree from an intellectual perspective.

  • I plan to use liberal studies as a temporary springboard into a different, more specific, major, because I am still undecided. 

  • I want to use liberal studies as a home during a temporary stay at CSU. 

  • I plan to enter a multi-disciplinary or inter-disciplinary graduate program, such as American Studies.

  • I need the breadth of liberal studies in order to follow my career track (e.g. researcher for a media outlet, press officer for a community group, bachelor’s degree prior to completing a post-baccalaureate teaching certificate, law school).

  • I have a range of college credits from earlier in my educational career and wish to complete a traditional degree using the rigorous upper level courses that I already have taken.
