Applied LIberal Studies Program Description
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Applied Liberal Studies provides opportunities for students to pursue a non-traditional course of study that combines a strong liberal education foundation with specialization (short of a major) in their chosen area of interest and with substantial external experiences that focus on service and leadership.  It gives them the freedom to choose from a broad variety of disciplines, to study an interdisciplinary and integrate body of knowledge, and to shape their undergraduate education to suit their needs and interests.  It also gives them the advantage of combining on-site education with off-site hands-on experience in the urban community.  Students will be able to establish a firm foundation in liberal or general education suitable for the workplace, design a flexible program of study suited to their employment, career plans and personal goals and be exposed to hands-on training in their concentrations with opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in a practical setting.
