General Information

Liberal Studies associate and baccalaureate degree programs operate under the general guidance of the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and the immediate supervision of the director of Liberal Studies. Two liberal studies degrees are offered: the associate of arts, providing a substantial liberal education as a base for upper-division specialization; and the bachelor of liberal studies, designed primarily for mature students with clearly defined academic and career goals. Faculty advisors from appropriate departments of the university provide curriculum guidance in particular areas of concentration. Working closely with both the liberal studies staff and faculty advisors, students prepare individual programs of study consistent with their own plans and expectations. Up to one- fourth of the credit required for the bachelor of liberal studies degree may be satisfied through successful completion of Armstrong-approved examinations and university-level independent study courses. To accommodate the needs of nontraditional students, advisement sessions can be scheduled during weekday evenings, as well as during normal business hours. Interested students should contact the Office of Liberal Studies to schedule appointments.

Special Programs

Both the associate of arts and the bachelor of liberal studies degrees are available through the Armstrong Liberty Center in Hinesville, Georgia. For further information, contact the Armstrong counselor at the Armstrong Liberty Center.
