Liberal Studies

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies degree transcends the boundaries of inquiry of any single department or discipline and a fosters a broad, challenging, interdisciplinary inquiry that combines the study of the liberal arts and sciences with the vision and core values of Mercyhurst University, while catering to the students' particular interests or anticipated career paths.

Students acquire a broad intellectual background, drawn from LBST's interdisciplinary courses, the Mercyhurst core curriculum, and particular interdisciplinary electives, while developing skills in communication, critical thinking and reasoning.

Students will also select an area of concentration that will function as a "focal track" within their Liberal Studies major. Track available for selection include: business, pre-law, pre-health sciences, pre-business and a more generalized track in interdisciplinary inquiry.
