This program is designed for students with academic and professional interests in a variety of fields. Students pursuing liberal studies can expect to acquire a well-developed capacity for independent and critical thinking, as well as writing and speaking skills. The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies through The University of Montana - Missoula and Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies through Montana State University - Billings or Montana State University - Bozeman provide graduates with a solid foundation for a number of careers. The University of Montana - Missoula interdisciplinary program gives students a systematic and in-depth study of culture, humanities and social science right on the campus.
Liberal Studies majors also have the option of earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Studies through either Montana State University - Billings or Montana State University - Bozeman via on-line programs. A student would earn a generic Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at FVCC before starting the upper division courses in a thematic concentration arranged with the advisor at the desired school. Students planning to enroll at Montana State University - Bozeman should complete two semesters of the same foreign language while earning their FVCC degree.
