Heritage: The Living Past

The following classes are examples of what students might include in their degree plans to address the HERITAGE Boyer category. The list is simply representative and not intended to be an exclusive list of what students may take to address the HERITAGE category. The largest portion of Liberal Studies students pursue their degrees online so the list includes mostly online courses. Student pursuing the degree on campus are able to draw from the full list of campus-based courses, most of which are not included here, as well as online courses.

It is possible that enrollment in a class may be limited to students of that program in a given semester.
