A Liberal Studies degree allows students to combine coursework in a number of disciplines to help them develop a broad base of skills necessary for becoming a leader in the workplace. 

Students who pursue a BLS degree develop critical thinking and conflict management skills through creative and innovative problem solving. Coursework focuses on:

  • Contemporary global issues and problems
  • Research and reporting skills
  • Workplace and communication trends
  • Popular culture in the mass media
  • Development of scientific ideas
  • Environmental issues

Students can declare their degree in Liberal Studies or have the ability to choose from one of the following emphases:

Online Program Delivery

The Liberal Studies program at UW Oshkosh is offered completely online. 

Online delivery at UW Oshkosh combines the best of both worlds--students get the flexibility they need with the same academic quality of our on-campus programs. 

Courses are delivered through Desire 2 Learn (D2L). Students interact with their professors and classmates through online discussion, class lectures, and a drop box for assignments. In online courses there is no scheduled meeting time, but there are deadlines and due dates for projects, assignments and discussions. 

Students get a full orientation and introduction to online learning in D2L before class begins, and UW Oshkosh provides academic and technology resources for students, faculty and staff.
