The English Liberal Arts major leads to a Bachelor degree that prepares students for further study in graduate or professional school. The Liberal Studies Bachelor degree allows majors to choose two tracks of interest (as a major area) as well as a minor area of their choice and/or sets of approved electives in consultation with major advisors. The track choices are: Arabic, Islamic Studies, American Cultural Communities, Professional Communication and Interdisciplinary Studies.
