Coordinator's Welcome

Welcome to Liberal Studies!

The purpose of the Liberal Studies program is to provide a solid multidisciplinary preparation in the Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences, Human Development, and the Arts. Because it is interdisciplinary, it is especially beneficial for future elementary school teachers who are required to teach all subjects. This major also prepares students for occupational opportunities in fields outside of education, such as business, human resources, social services, management, government, and graduate programs.

Students gain a broad, diverse, culturally sensitive perspective by integrating concepts, communicating effectively, thinking critically and creatively, problem solving, and making sound ethical decisions. This richly diversified education is one of the largest majors at Fresno State and provides a foundation for meeting a wide range of future goals.
