The Liberal Studies major is designed to be a student-centered major. Students who choose this major build a bachelor’s degree with a concentration that works for them by making connections among fields of study with an area of concentration that fits their educational, career, and personal goals. The major is appealing to students who want to pursue a range of opportunities in any number of different fields because it allows students to choose a combination of courses that uniquely help them achieve their career and personal goals. It is also ideal for students that may need to graduate after a late change of major or vocational interest, desire a bachelor’s degree completion program that allows for greater flexibility in the use of transfer credits, or want a degree to meet continuing education or personal learning goals.
A student must possess at least 60 cumulative credit hours before declaring a Liberal Studies major. Students are not allowed to double major in Liberal Studies.
See the Graduate section of this Catalog for more information on Graduate programs offered at Mount Mercy. Juniors and seniors may be eligible to take up to 13 graduate-level credits through the MMU Plus program.
