Liberal Arts

(Interdisciplinary Majors)

Program Description

While Colorado Mesa University provides a wide range of specific program options, the university also provides students the chance to explore broadly and still earn a degree. A liberal arts degree is designed to offer students the opportunity to craft a plan of study to suit their individual career and academic aspirations. Under the direction of an advisor, a liberal arts degree-seeking student can design a coherent program by choosing appropriate courses that focus on several of the interests that the student has. The Liberal Arts degree can be pursued at the two-year or at the four-year levels, leading to an AA, an AS, or a BA. As listed under the Programs of Study tab, some of the options offer more focus while others are quite broad.
