Liberal Studies, B.A. or B.S./MALS

Program Requirements

The program enables full-time students to complete 12 hours of graduate work. Six of these hours may count toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. The other six hours are beyond the 120 hours required for the bachelor's degree. These hours may be used to meet major or minor requirements (with department or program approval) or as electives. After receiving their bachelor's degree, students take an additional 21 hours of graduate work in their fifth year to complete the requirements for the Master of Arts degree in Liberal Arts.
