Special Programs in Liberal Studies
College of Arts & Sciences

105 Foust Building
(336) 334-5241

The College of Arts and Sciences offers four programs of focused interdisciplinary study, each of which is firmly grounded in the liberal arts. These programs, designed and administered by faculty committees, are listed below.

In addition, when existing programs in the liberal arts do not meet certain academic needs, students may petition to pursue an interdisciplinary major that they design, in consultation with relevant faculty. Students interested in pursuing this possibility should first discuss it with relevant faculty and then consult with the Associate Dean of the College (Room 100, Foust Building). If the request seems justifiable, a faculty committee is appointed to work with the student in developing a program in an academically feasible and coherent manner. Upon the approval of that faculty committee and the Associate Dean, a self-designed interdisciplinary program of study is established as a major for the student, a faculty advisor is appointed, and the Director of Student Academic Services and the University Registrar are notified.

Special Programs in Liberal Studies include:

  • African American Studies (minor only)
  • Archaeology (major)
  • International Studies, including the following areas of study:
Area I: A Global Approach to International Development (major or minor)
Area II: Inter-Cultural Studies (major or minor)
Area III: Regional Studies, including
Russian Studies (major or minor)
European Studies (second major or minor)
African Studies (minor)
Asian Studies (minor )
  • Linguistics (major)

See alphabetical program listings for complete details and requirements for each of these programs.

As with other programs in the college, students must meet the liberal education requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences (CLER). See a detailed listing of (CLER) courses meeting each area requirement.
