Liberal Studies (BA)


At University of Detroit Mercy, the Bachelor of Arts with a major in Liberal Studies is a degree completion program. Like all of our academic programs, our goal is to produce graduates who can think critically and communicate effectively to succeed in an increasingly diverse society. This program is very individualized based on each student's areas of prior study and has the potential to encompass many disciplines from the humanities to the sciences.

In broadest terms, the major consists of two concentrations of 21 credits each, for a total of 42 credits. This includes nine credits in each concentration at the 3000/4000 levels. To obtain this undergraduate degree, the student must fulfill the requirements of the University Core Curriculum, the requirements for the program major and have completed a minimum of 126 credit hours.
