|Sample Program||Course Schedule|
The Liberal Arts major permits a student to customize their education by combining courses selected from the offerings of two disciplines. Due to the individual nature of this program, students who apply for admission are expected to:
1. to design a focused major proposal which clearly relates to their future goals; and
2. to give evidence of exceptional maturity by their willingness to refine and develop their proposals through open-ended discussion with appropriate members of the College faculty, particularly the Liberal Arts advisor, and their faculty advisors in the two areas they propose to combine.
A total of 36 credits, 18 from each of two areas, is required for this major. No more than six credits at introductory level are permitted in each area. The College does not approve combining this major with a program leading to certification in secondary education. A student who wants to design a Liberal Arts major must complete the application procedures no later than the completion of his or her Sophomore year.
Transfer students may apply for this major. They are expected to complete at least nine credits at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, in each of the two areas selected.

During the discussion of the student’s proposal, the Chairperson/ Director establishes minimum departmental requirements, designates appropriate introductory courses, determines general guidelines, and may make specific recommendations concerning upper-division courses.
Once the appropriate faculty have approved the student’s proposal, the student brings the proposal to the Liberal Arts advisor. The advisor reviews the proposal and makes additional recommendations, if necessary. Otherwise, the advisor completes the application procedure by signing the proposal and registering the student as a Liberal Arts major.
At each subsequent registration period, students following individual Liberal Arts programs must present both their approved application and their semester’s program card when seeking their faculty advisor’s signature.
A variety of internship opportunities are open to students with a Liberal Arts major reflecting one or both major areas of interest.
