Liberal Studies at Seattle University is the interdisciplinary study of the arts and sciences, and it links metacognition and community engagement in a way that cultivates humanity. It is for students who have decided to gain a wide-ranging education rather than be narrowly focused.
The Liberal Studies major affords the flexibility to structure your own program while providing you with solid preparation for a rewarding career or graduate school.
Students work closely with an advisor, focusing their plan of study through project-centered work on complex, real-world problems. Coursework is an exciting intellectual and social experience, anchored in strategic major courses and mentoring relationships with professors.
Because businesses and communities need creative problem-solvers, leaders and integrative thinkers. Because it is no longer enough to be narrowly trained in one discipline. Majors obtain broad intellectual experience and specialized skills.
Degree Offered: Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies
Major: Students can major (60 credits) in Liberal Studies and easily coordinate their Liberal Studies major with a second major in another discipline or with a minor.
Strategic Core (25 credits): Majors develop interdisciplinary scholarship, community engagement, and metacognition (reflective thinking) through five strategic courses.
Areas of Knowledge (35 credits): Majors work closely with professors and advisors to choose from scores of courses in four areas of knowledge.
"Liberal Studies Majors, for me, are the most remarkable students on campus. They seek more than narrow disciplinary work, and instead pursue broader understanding of complex real-world problems by integrating insights drawn from these disciplines. In other words, they work and think at the most challenging, academic level possible - interdisciplinary scholarship." ~ Sven Arvidson, Ph.D., Program Director
