Degree Plans

Graduate Quickly with Employable Skills

As a liberal studies major, you'll choose classes from different areas of the University that best fit your needs, with a focus on one or two clusters. The flexibility of our LBS program allows you to graduate quickly. For example, you could transfer in upwards of 75 hours and graduate in a year-and-a-half – or faster with our summer options – after fulfilling the requirement of 45 hours taken from TXWES.
