Liberal Studies

  •  Carlow University Student Studying in the lobby of Antonian

    A Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies provides an ideal major for the creative, independent student who is interested in an interdisciplinary focus. This major allows you to gain significant depth in two or more areas of study and, at the same time, to acquire the breadth that is characteristic of a liberal arts education. 

    While a degree in Liberal Studies is a very practical degree in itself, this major is an ideal preparation if you are planning to pursue studies beyond the bachelor degree level. It is an individually-designed program of study involving the humanities, the natural sciences and mathematics, and the social sciences. The program culminates in a required senior thesis drawing from your particular areas of concentration. You will work closely with your Liberal Studies advisors to design and meet the specific program requirements.
