    Program Requirements


    Total Program Required Credits: Minimum 54 credits. The required number of credits for each minor and the particular sequence of courses are determined by the academic program offering the minor. 

    Three Minors in Separate Programs of Study: The three minors constitute the minimum 54 credit requirement. Two of the chosen minors must be in Liberal Arts programs; one minor may be in a Professional Studies program (i.e. Accounting, Business Mgt., Human Resources, Information Technology or Nursing), or all three may be in a Liberal Arts program. 

    Liberal Studies Thesis: During the senior year, the student will produce a senior project that reflects the learning outcomes of the program. While this project will be created in conjunction with the program advisor, the student will be free to choose a project faculty director from any of the chosen minor fields. 

    Carlow Compass: Any of the Carlow Compass courses can be counted toward the minors where applicable, as well as to the Liberal Studies major as a whole.
