Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies
The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies is a 42-course, 126-credit degree. It is not designed to overlap with existing degrees but rather to provide qualified students with an academic program that meets their unique needs. Offering students flexibility, independence, and academic rigor, this option provides undergraduate adult learners with the opportunity to draw on the resources of the entire curriculum, across disciplines while building an academic focus in areas they find most important.
Concentration in Homeland Security Studies
The Homeland Security Studies Concentration is a 6 course, 18 credit specialization that focuses on issues relevant to corporate, national and global security. This is an interdisciplinary specialization that focuses on student’s ability to assess risk and engage in critical thinking about conflict and security. This concentration will give students writing, research and foundational skills in Homeland Security that they will need to work in the securities field, border patrol, and emergency management or to pursue a graduate degree in Homeland Security.
The Concentration in Homeland Security will be open to all students enrolled in our BA Program in Liberal Studies and our BS Programs in Psychology, Criminal Justice and Business Management. These concentration courses will replace corresponding open elective credit requirements.
