Liberal Arts Program Description
The proposed program mirrors the existing on-ground Liberal Arts program which provides students with the ability to complete a generalist degree that provides them with the skills and abilities to be successful in a variety of career paths. Graduates of the program go on to work successfully in business, education, the non-profit sector, and customer service venues. The School of Arts and Sciences offers this interdisciplinary major to students of the College of Adult Undergraduate Studies and the Women’s College, encouraging students to develop a broad understanding and appreciation of the main areas of human knowledge and values. Liberal Arts is one of Notre Dame’s high demand programs, and offering a fully online option will provide increased levels of flexibility to current traditional and adult learner undergraduate populations, as well as provide greater regional access to students for whom the traditional classroom is not an option.
