Students Overview

Liberal Studies Students are Everywhere

The University of Illinois at Springfield is located in the state capital of Illinois and the Liberal Studies degree program was among the first degrees offered by the university. While some of our student live on campus and attend regular classrooms, our students can learn almost anywhere. We have students on the west coast in cities such as Seattle, WA, San Francisco, CA, and Los Angeles, CA. On the east coast, our students hail from New York, Pittsburg, PA and Richmond VA. Some of them are from as for south as Orlando, FL and as far north as Miles City, MT. We have even had a student who sailed along the west coast while finishing her degree.

Some of our students have taken semesters to study abroad, while others work on their degree while serving in the military overseas. Most of our students work full-time jobs and attend classes at convient times for their schedule. Regardless of where you live and what you do, the Liberal Studies program can work for you.
