Liberal Studies

The Liberal Studies degree is a flexible degree for students who intend to transfer into the College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University. It is a good choice for students wishing to design a unique program of study that spans disciplines. It is also a flexible choice for distance education students planning to transfer into the e-campus Liberal Studies program at OSU.

Students, with their advisor, develop a plan based on coursework selected from the various disciplines within OSU's College of Liberal Arts, including:

  • Anthropology
  • Art
  • Economics
  • English
  • Ethnic Studies
  • Foreign Language & Literature
  • History
  • Music
  • New Media Communications
  • Philosophy
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Speech Communication
  • Sociology
  • Women's Studies

There is also a specific Liberal Studies degree for students planning to major in pre-elementary education at OSU. Please speak with an education advisor for more information about this degree.

Students interested in this degree are strongly encouraged to enroll in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) as there may be courses required for a chosen discipline that are only offered at OSU.
