Why a BLA?

The BLA is the degree designed "your way." You choose which disciplines to combine in your own Liberal Arts degree program, with the guidance of a faculty advisor.

The BLA will help you gain critical life skills needed to adapt to a changing world, rather than being locked into a specialization. Students who earn a BLA acquire diverse skills in communication and critical thinking that qualify them for employment in both the private and public sectors.  Some of those career options may include:

  • Community Relations & Organizing
  • Private & Public Office Work
  • Social Services through Governmental or Private Agencies
  • Business or paraprofessional positions that require technical writing skills and creative problem solving.

The BLA can also provide a solid academic background for advanced study in graduate school or professional programs.  Some of those postgraduate study options may include:

  • Business Administration (MBA)
  • Elementary or Secondary Teaching (MAT)
  • Public Administration (MPA)
  • Other graduate programs or professional training according to your academic interests
