Prepare For Change

Designed for the nontraditional student who wants to complete a bachelor’s degree, this degree-completion program will allow you to finish your degree online and graduate with a Bachelor of Liberal Studies (B.L.S.). Program requirements can be completed in as little as 2.5 years and will help you develop a breadth of knowledge that reflects a true liberal arts education. By taking an interdisciplinary perspective, you will learn to integrate and synthesize knowledge across disciplinary boundaries and apply that knowledge to a diverse multicultural society. As a student in this program, you will:

  • Develop broad-based knowledge in the liberal arts and become more articulate, analytical, culturally informed, and well-rounded.
  • Acquire analytical and decision-making skills, advanced communication skills, and a global perspective.
  • Explore questions, solve problems, and examine social issues from multiple perspectives.

Admission to the program requires the completion of 45 credit hours from an accredited college or university and approval of the program coordinator. 

The B.L.S. degree is part of Project Graduate, a Kentucky initiative to help adult learners who have completed some college finish their first degree. For more information about Project Graduate, follow this link.
