Liberal Studies Program Description
Major in Liberal Studies

Liberal Studies

The major in liberal studies is designed as a general liberal arts degree. The major was developed for students with experience or training as professionals or para-professionals in areas such as corrections, counseling, health sciences, and teaching. It also is of value to persons with other backgrounds who would benefit from studies within a broad liberal arts context. It does not provide a professional credential.

Students majoring in liberal studies select courses from all of these areas: Society and Behavior, Art and Language, and Science and Mathematics.


Utica College maintains seven academic computer laboratories on campus. These labs contain either IBM-compatible or Apple Macintosh computers. Classes are taught in some of the computer labs; all labs are accessible to any UC student during published hours.

The labs are equipped with laser printers, and the computers have word processing, spreadsheet, and database programs. Student assistants and a Computer Help Desk provide any assistance that students need.

Additional Opportunities

UC has entered into an agreement with New York Chiropractic College to offer qualified UC students the opportunity earn a Bachelors of Science degree in Liberal Studies from UC and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from NYCC through a special combined articulation program.
