Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies

The Department of Liberal Studies continues the tradition of Mercer's founder, Jesse Mercer, by making a liberal arts foundation for professional and personal development accessible to working adults throughout Georgia. Our commitment to students who participate in our courses and programs is to assist them in developing their capacities for critical thinking and communication, and in deepening their understanding of the diverse culture in which we live as a foundation for meaningful living and responsible citizenship.

Bachelor of Liberal Studies Degree

The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies degree with its individualized program of study is designed for those students who want a bachelor's degree for their personal and professional development. Consistent with the University's goal to offer "programs based upon a strong liberal arts foundation," the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program provides a curriculum responsive to the individual's instructional choices and the College's instructional capabilities. This B.A. degree provides an individualized program of study in a select range of courses and fosters students' ability to think critically and constructively in relation to their self-chosen academic goals. While this degree allows students to propose their own programs of study, it broadens their academic perspectives by emphasizing interdisciplinarity as a method of comprehension and understanding. Students who wish to focus their studies in the liberal arts will find a variety of options for designing a program consistent with their interests. Students who bring with them previous academic work may find that with this program they are able to complete their studies in good fashion by combining their work in various fields.

The Bachelor of Liberal studies degree focuses on several general student learning outcomes that are consistent with all of the individualized programs of studies.
