Find your purposeful and meaningful career through your own customized liberal arts major

Our liberal arts major allows you to study several different fields within the College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences. This unique program is a cross-disciplinary curriculum of 45 hours, with a minimum of 15 hours from each of three cognates related to the student’s objectives. Any student interested in the liberal arts major should meet with the Registrar to determine courses in the three cognates. Prepare to serve the world with your unique goals and talents. 

All liberal arts majors must apply and be admitted to the major prior to the beginning of the junior year (after completing 60 credits). Complete guidelines and requirements for the liberal arts major are available in the Office of the Registrar.
