Liberal Studies: Global Communication & Leadership

Bachelor of Arts

The Liberal Studies program at CWU-Lynnwood seeks to empower inquiring leaders to communicate productively in our increasingly global and interconnected society. With this major, students can design a program to meet specific vocational objectives through the selection of additional career-specific electives. A broad range of classes are offered that can be used to meet individual needs.

Transfer from 2-year Partners

Students with Washington DTA and AA degree paths will often find this program an excellent fit. Students seeking a BA completion from an AAS, AST or similar degree can also find exciting options not available with many other four-year degrees.

Degree Completion

The program is also offered for those students who transfer into the program from a four-year college seeking to complete a BA degree long wished for but never completed. These students may tailor courses from CWU and all other institutions into the program to meet program requirements and career goals.

All transfer students are encouraged to seek advisement early.
