The Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) is a general studies degree in the liberal arts. It provides the flexibility to choose courses based on interests and goals. This particular program is a degree completion program aimed at students who have some college coursework. Up to three-fourths of the degree requirements may be transferred from accredited institutions.
Students complete coursework in three areas of distribution; these areas may be focused on a single discipline or diversified over several disciplines.
