The College of Liberal Arts offers a general degree in Liberal Studies for students who are not able to select a single discipline that would meet their professional goals and interests. This major program offers two tracks: Humanities and Social Sciences. The major in Liberal Studies is essentially self-designed, other than some common writing intensive coursework and a course that emphasizes critical thinking. It is purposely flexible so students can develop a program of study that will help them achieve a specific personal or professional goal that might be unrelated to a traditional discipline.

The Liberal Studies major was designed to meet the unique needs of working adults who may have delayed college or who are returning after a long absence from school. Courses are offered year-round at Main Campus, Ambler Campus, Online, and at Temple Center City. Students may combine locations as their schedule dictates.

Online-Only Program of Study

Beginning in Fall 2020, new non-traditional, transfer students may apply to take their entire degree program online. Admission to this program is separate and distinct from the campus-based program of study. The only major concentration that is available for the online-only program is the Social Science: Psychology concentration. For more information contact Dr. Keith Gumery at
