Liberal StudiesDirector Mark Sirkin
Wright State's liberal studies major allows students to tailor their academic program to their needs and interests across a wide range of disciplines. This program is designed for students seeking a more interdisciplinary educational experience than is available with other majors. The liberal studies degree prepares students for a variety of careers. The program can serve as a pre-law curriculum. English, communication, political science, and history courses can help prepare students for careers in journalism or other media. Fine arts courses can be combined with other disciplines to prepare people for careers working in museums or art galleries in research, marketing, or management capacities. Others could use the degree to prepare for careers in library science or in the publishing industry. Because students select from a range of disciplines to individualize their programs, there are many other career possibilities.
The Bachelor of Arts in liberal studies focuses on the core competency areas of communication, critical thinking, understanding society, and self-understanding. Students will complete eight hours each in the humanities, fine arts, and social sciences, and then select one of those three as an area of concentration. With help from a faculty advisor, students may choose courses from a variety of disciplines.
This program requires extensive advising and the development of a program of study. Some departments may have specific entrance/audition requirements.
