About Liberal Studies

This program is designed for students wishing to pursue a career as an elementary school teacher or those seeking a broad education in liberal arts and sciences.

The Liberal Studies program offers a broad-based education in six areas: language arts, mathematics, natural sciences, history and social sciences, humanities, and child development. Students augment this broad curriculum with a concentration in a chosen field of study.

Education courses with hands-on classroom experiences are integrated within the curriculum. A senior seminar synthesizes the learning that has taken place over the course of four years.
