Catalog Year: 2015

Associate in Liberal Studies


Program Description

This highly individualized degree combines both liberal arts and sciences and occupational education course work. It provides a greater element of freedom for the student and is especially beneficial for anyone with broad life or educational experiences. Because of the individualized nature of this degree, all students pursuing it should develop an educational plan with a counselor and should discuss transfer implications as they develop the plan. The college requires these students to have a plan of study approved by the Dean of Students or the Associate Dean of Counseling and Career Services on file. Students with previous academic, career and life experiences are encouraged to investigate the options of proficiency credit to substitute their acquired knowledge for prerequisite, course and/or degree requirements. This degree is intended to articulate to universities offering the Board of Governor's baccalaureate degree. Transfer of this degree to institutions which do not offer it may result in some loss of credit. Universities offering the Board of Governor's degree are: Chicago State University Eastern Illinois University Governors State University University of Illinois at Springfield Western Illinois University
