Testimonial Image

Being an underrepresented minority and first-generation student has been rough but it has also taught me a lot of lessons, sparked my desire for personal growth, and inspired me to pursue my dreams academically. I'm currently in my last year of college and I will say that the last year has definitely been my best because I discovered the Liberal Studies Studies Program. Since I started CWU in 2016, I kept experimenting with different majors and none of them seem to align more perfectly with my academic and personal goals like the Liberal Studies Program. I am incredibly grateful to have found the BA Liberal Studies Program in the last year, and for the genuine guidance and advice of Professor Scott Robinson. I know that completing my BA in Liberal Studies Studies with a minor in Administrative Management will be the key to my successful future because I will be exposed to a variety of disciplines, where there will be a heavy focus in writing and communicating effectively. I am so excited to be closer than ever to graduating from CWU with my BA in Liberal Studies, and for the many new opportunities that lay ahead of me. Thanks, Liberal Studies Program for changing my life forever.

The BA, Liberal Studies, along with other programs within the College of Arts and Humanities, strives to prepare our students for placement in their preferred careers upon graduation.  To accomplish this, CAH is focusing on Career Pathways where a student can discover direct paths from educational disciplines to careers with the competitive advantage it represents in today’s uncertain and dynamic economy.

Career Pathways are small groups of occupations within a career cluster. Occupations within a pathway share common skills, knowledge, and interests that often come from specific departments within the college.

Discover which departments are preparing students for the specific pathway careers.  The data referred to is taken from an extensive survey of over 12,000 College of Arts and Humanities graduates.  The data provides valuable insight as to which department might be best suited for your personalized career path.
