Offered only to students in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Bachelor of Liberal Arts (BLA) program has become especially attractive to students who plan to attend graduate school in preparation for teaching at the elementary level and to those interested in multicultural studies, museum and archival studies, environmental studies, and positions within nonprofit organizations.
The essential difference between the BLA program and other programs is the requirement that students take two disciplinary concentrations of 8 to 10 courses each. Thus, the degree offers students curricular flexibility and a broad background in the humanities and social sciences. Students must, of course, fulfill the General Education Requirement and must meet with their advisor for consultation in choosing their courses.
