Liberal Studies


Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary major encompassing areas of knowledge in the arts, sciences, social sciences, and language. The program provides the broad academic background necessary for future teachers and is an excellent preparation for advanced studies in graduate school. The major may be planned with a particular career in mind, such as government or public service, business, counseling, law, librarianship, teaching, medicine and health, non-profit service, management, or work in multicultural communities.



Liberal Studies has a new Program Director. He is Bruce Avery, a Professor of English. His research interest is in Shakespeare Studies and pedagogy.  He is also a professional actor and lives in San Francisco with his son.
