Through careful self-assessment and goal setting, Liberal Studies students design individualized degree plans in consultation with their advisor/instructor in LIS 301, where students identify their learning goals, needs, and strategies. Students pursue their degree through course work selected from throughout the university as well as independent studies, service or experiential learning, and credit for prior learning. Students can complete the curriculum in person, online, or blended.

Although degree plans must be broad enough to meet the interdisciplinary goals of the degree, students may choose a thematic focus for their degrees, such as leadership or human resource development. In addition, students may add a minor such as African American Studies, Art History, Criminology and Criminal Justice, English, Sociology, or Women and Gender Studies.
