Endicott’s Liberal Studies major is rooted in the liberal arts and is the most versatile and individualized of Endicott’s majors meeting the professional goals of a wide range of students. Students begin with an introduction to interdisciplinary studies so that they are exposed to reading, thinking and writing within different disciplines. They then choose courses of interest from a range of liberal arts subjects, including history, political science, English, psychology, philosophy, religion, sociology, and other areas. Students in the program also participate in at least one interdisciplinary Learning Community, in which they examine a topic from two disciplinary perspectives (in two complementary courses) and then explore connections in those courses in a team-taught integrative seminar. Academic minors are encouraged as a way for students to further develop their specific knowledge base. Students may also design and apply to pursue an Individually Designed Liberal Studies program of study.
Liberal Studies majors apply what they learn in the classroom to a wide range of internships from businesses and schools to law firms and government agencies. Graduates benefit from limitless career options, and recent graduates have pursued further study at Fordham University, Sacred Heart University, Boston College, Johns Hopkins University, and other prestigious institutions.
Students interested in becoming licensed public school teachers complete the Liberal Studies major with a concentration in early childhood or elementary education. For more information, please see the School of Education section of the catalog.
