Achievement in Liberal Arts / Multidisciplinary Studies

There is something almost magical that happens when students choose to focus on areas of study that captivate and intrigue them…They explore and truly engage, and leave fully prepared for a career or further study that they are passionate about.

The Multidisciplinary Studies major (formerly called Liberal Arts) allows students to concentrate studies in 2 different synergistic fields to, in essence, create their own unique major. The combinations are compelling - such as Psychology and Criminal Justice, Business and Global Studies, Biology and Human Performance - and the work opens up exciting opportunities.
