The liberal arts are the subjects or skills that were once considered essential for a free person and a citizen to know in order to participate in civic life. The importance of being able to participate in civic life included the liberties of public debate, defending oneself in court, serving on juries, and military service. 

The goal of the liberal arts studies is to produce a virtuous, knowledgeable and articulate person. Earning a Liberal Arts degree can be interpreted as a general course of study and refers to matters not relating to the professional, vocational, or technical curricula. Liberal arts career opportunities are some of the most necessary and respected careers and include professions which require education at the university level in degree concentrations such as: art degree, English degree, foreign language degree, political science degree, biology degree, or psychology degree.

The Liberal Studies program is a degree completion program designed for students who already hold an Associate degree or previous college credits. Successful students should be able to use the education to confidently pursue careers or position requiring an advanced knowledge of liberal arts. The online program gives busy students the option of earning a valuable education, while still fulfilling current obligations with other individuals or establishments.
