The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

The BLS Online Humanities Concentration

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, Humanities Concentration, is an online degree completion program for adult students who have earned a minimum of 60 hours of transferable credit at other institutions. The program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to earn their baccalaureate degree in an e-learning environment by gaining a thorough understanding of the humanities, the interconnections among them, and their relevance to individuals and to modern society. The humanities are broadly defined to include those disciplines that study people — their ideas, their history, their literature, their artifacts, and their values. The program will investigate individual people in their solitude, life together in societies, and models of and for reality that constitute cultures. Individual courses will tackle the Big Questions that have been the traditional province of the humanities such as "What makes a life worth living?"

The program is designed to enhance the student's ability to think critically and analytically, to communicate clearly and effectively, to understand and explain interconnections among the Humanities disciplines, to appreciate the wide range of human experience, and to achieve increased depth of knowledge in one of the four categories of the Humanities: Literature, Fine Arts, Philosophy/Religion/Ethics, and Historical Perspectives.

BLS Student Portfolio
Keep copies of your major BLS assignments. You can keep them in your iSpartan drive as long as you are active at UNCG, but also keep them in at least one more location (e.g., your own Google drive, your own computer, or on a thumb drive). You will use them when you compile your Senior Portfolio for the BLS Program.
