Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies
Liberal Studies is one of the largest majors at Fresno State. It is an interdisciplinary program that provides a foundation for meeting a wide range of future goals.
The purpose of the Liberal Studies program is to provide a solid multidisciplinary preparation in the Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences, Human Development, and the Arts. Because it is interdisciplinary, it is especially beneficial for future elementary school teachers who are required to teach all subjects.
Students gain a broad, diverse, culturally sensitive perspective by integrating concepts, communicating effectively, thinking critically and creatively, problem solving, and making sound ethical decisions. This richly diversified education is one of the largest majors at Fresno State and provides a foundation for meeting a wide range of future goals.
