Letters, Arts, and Sciences is a complete two-year degree major. However, graduates who later seek admission to baccalaureate degree majors may apply baccalaureate credits toward the new degree. 

  • The Letters, Arts, and Sciences (LAS) degree is a classic liberal arts program with a flexible focus that allows you to achieve your specific educational and career goals.
  • It is a liberal curriculum that is focused on an area which the student and his or her advisors develop.With the help of an academic adviser, you choose courses from a variety of disciplines.
  • The combination of those courses provides the broad liberal arts education required of educated citizens and leaders, but at the same time cultivates the specific abilities that employers seek.
  • LAS fosters good communication skills, a broad knowledge base, and the ability to analyze and adapt to change — qualities that can help you find unique career opportunities in even the most rapidly changing economic conditions.
