On-Campus B.A.

Distance B.A.

Legal Studies Minor

Dual Degree in Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts, B.A. & Engineering Science, B.S.

We offer an on-campus and distance Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts. Requirements for the on-campus and online programs vary. We also offer an interdisciplinary minor in legal studies designed for students who plan a career in law or related fields such as human resources, business, and communications. Besides a small number of courses every Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts major must take, everything else is up to you. No matter how many side roads you want to check out or different directions you find yourself heading as you’re choosing your liberal arts courses—it all works.

3 components to the Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts Major:

  1. Your all university core curriculum (AUCC) requirements
  2. A second field (a minor)
  3. Open electives (e.g., Course Clusters) in Liberal Arts

What is Course Clustering?

Course-clustering means choosing your courses based upon a larger interest, theme, potential professional goal, or career field. You will choose courses that make sense to you, that follow where you want to go, but, best of all, allow you to put together your own unique combination of intellectual prowess, professional expertise, and career skills.

As an interdisciplinary liberal arts major, you will work with your Academic Success Coordinator (ASC) on finding just the right selection of courses and combination of academic experiences that fits you and where you’re eventually heading after graduation.

Practicums

We believe an academic experience isn’t just about being in the classroom. It’s about the total range of experiences you will have in our program. Our program allows for and encourages you to seek all kinds of available learning experiences.

We offer a number of practicums in the areas of student media, including CTV, KCSU, College Avenue, and the Collegian. Also, we offer various practicums in events production, including Arts Production, Sports Production, and Event Production. Practicum courses are a great opportunity to learn and perfect vitally important media production skills in the area of journal and news writing, video production and editing, and/or arts or sports event production. Contact your ASC for more information on how you can register for a LB 387 A-G Practicum.

Among others, many of our students have earned credit doing things they love, such as:

  • Working at the student newspaper (the Rocky Mountain Collegian).
  • Hosting a music program on KCSU.
  • Delivering campus news on CTV (campus television).
  • Writing articles or taking photographs for College Avenue (a student magazine).
  • Recording live concerts and plays or sporting events held on campus.

In addition to these practicums, our major makes good use of every liberal arts course focused on arts productions—anything from lighting to directing to stage design.

Internships

Numerous employment studies say the same thing: One of the best ways of enhancing your professional qualifications is to take an internship. In fact, students who take internships are more likely to have their future plans secured after graduation.

Not only is it a great way to gain a sense of what it means to work within a professional environment, it is one of the best ways you can get your foot in the door of your chosen career path.

Our students have found internships working as photographers or desktop publishing designers, coordinators in a film festival, production assistants on film sets, social media communicators, just to name a few.
