The goals of the liberal education program are to provide students with the skills needed to complete successful college-level work and to obtain exposure to and appreciate the integration of a variety of disciplinary areas. Students must complete the four components of the Liberal Education Program: proficiencies (including two writing intensive courses and one applied quantitative literacy course), First-Year Experience, core courses and Integrative Experience. Students earning a B.A., B.S. or B.F.A. must also complete an internship and the senior-year capstone project and must make contributions to their student portfolios.
Students earning an Associate of Science (A.S.) must complete five components of the Liberal Education Program: math, WRT101 and three core courses, totaling 20 credits of liberal education. In addition, one writing intensive course and one applied quantitative literacy course must be completed in their major.
