Liberal Studies – Program Features
Liberal Studies allows students to create individualized programs of study with concentrations in art history, music, political science or the physical sciences. Students may also develop thematic concentrations representing areas such as international studies or women studies.
Liberal Studies majors build an individualized plan of study with the help of an advisor. Students maintain a portfolio documenting activities and coursework that fulfill the liberal studies plan and then present the plans to the Liberal Studies Committee and the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Maryville’s Liberal Studies graduates are prepared to succeed in a variety of careers including management, government, public service and communications. They have gone on to earn graduate and law degrees, earned stock broker licenses and teach in primary and secondary schools. They are writers and editors, social workers and bankers.
