Liberal Studies at Seattle University is the interdisciplinary study of the arts and sciences, and it links reflective cognition 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 adviser, 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.Why pursue a Liberal Studies degree? 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.
“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
