Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (LSTU)

Overview of the LSTU Degree

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies degree offers students an opportunity to create individualized majors that draw courses from several departments at SFA. 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 B.A. in Liberal Studies program.

Students who are interested in designing an individualized program of study are encouraged to meet with the Director of the Multidisciplinary Programs to discuss their interests. The possible areas of study are limited only by the courses taught at SFA; among the many possibilities are African Studies, Law and Society, Philosophy and Politics, Psychobiology or Art and Society. Alumni of this program have gone on to work in such fields 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. Students who seek admission to the Liberal Studies program should have completed at least 24 semester credit hours at the time of application. A short essay outlining the course of study, approved by at least two members of the regular faculty, is required.
