Tuskegee University to Offer a Liberal Studies Major for Nontraditional and Traditional Students

The College of Arts and Sciences at historically Black Tuskegee University in Alabama has announced the development of two new degree programs designed to accommodate both nontraditional, returning students and undecided majors. Beginning in fall 2022 with an online format, Tuskegee will offer two degrees in liberal studies.

The programs will present a diverse array of humanities and STEM courses designed to reinforce critical thinking skills and highlight the importance of cross-disciplinary exposure. The bachelor of arts and bachelor of science in liberal studies will be fully online for nontraditional students seeking to complete undergraduate degrees they started previously.

“The fully online program caters to non-traditional adult students, for example, those who began a Tuskegee degree but did not complete it; thus, opening the door to finalizing a major milestone in their lives,” explained College of Arts and Sciences Dean Channa Prakash. “The programs are incentivized by the fact that students will be able to use prior Tuskegee coursework and transfer credits towards completing the degree.”

An on-ground adaptation of the degree programs in liberal studies will also be available as a degree option for incoming students and current students who are undecided majors. Any incoming Tuskegee student may enroll in the on-campus version of the degree program, and all undecided majors, beginning in fall 2022, will be allowed to choose to major in liberal studies.
