Liberal Studies

Celebrating uniqueness

Are you not sure what major would be best for you? Are you looking into three different majors right now? Are you not feeling connected to any one major? Do you just wish you could create your own major? If you said yes to any or all of those questions, then Liberal Studies may be exactly right for you.

With curriculum chosen by you, specific to your interests and goals, a Liberal Studies degree can be as distinctive as you need it to be. You’ll get the chance to work closely with an advisor and faculty across the UWEC campus to create the perfect major for your academic interests and professional goals. 


Liberal Studies Application Assistance

Liberal Studies is a fantastic approach toward receiving the education YOU desire. However, the idea of creating your own major is daunting. If you feel the pressures of the Liberal Studies Major application weighing on you, there is no need to fret. Victoria Larson, Liberal Studies Art Therapy and Spanish Liberal Arts Double Major, will be holding Liberal Studies Peer Mentor Meetings for the Fall of 2016.
Tuesday, November 1st at 7:00 PM held in Centennial 4308

Wednesday, November 2nd at 7:00 PM held in Centennial 4308

Monday, November 21st at 7:00 PM held in Centennial 4308

Students attending the Liberal Studies Peer Mentor Meetings should bring:

    • Completed "intake form" to serve as an inspiration for brainstorming the formation and organization of the proposal draft for the Liberal Studies Major
    • Review of past proposals to act as guidance toward creating a concrete draft and to connect to on/off campus resources
