Liberal Studies

Do you have broad and diverse interests in the liberal arts? Customize your education with the interdisciplinary, self-designed liberal studies major. 

Liberal studies at DeSales University crosses the traditional boundaries of academic disciplines to address your specific intellectual and vocational needs. You can customize your education within a carefully constructed yet flexible framework that ensures rigorous academic standards.

You'll work closely with the Chair of Liberal Studies, Dr. Dennis Varley, to design your individual course of studies. Each program must include courses in English, history, philosophy, fine arts, foreign language, and social sciences, such as political science and economics. You'll be encouraged to think creatively in selecting your elective courses — study abroad and internships are highly recommended.
