Design your own degree program

The Bachelor of Arts in liberal studies gives motivated students the chance to create individualized majors drawn from several SFA departments. These individualized majors are distinguished from double majors in that the area of overlap between the two or more traditional disciplines is a core part of the program.

Skills to adapt to the changing job market 

Each Liberal Studies degree is unique, tailored to the student’s interests. This allows students to align academic and career paths through imaginative fields of study. Alumni of this program have gone on to work in fields as diverse as human resources, the oil industry and public service or have pursued graduate degrees at such institutions as the Bush School of Government and Public Service. Other career options include politics, media, education, communication and finance.
