The Liberal Studies program offered by the Laurentian University offers a combination of courses in biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, mathematics, and physics. In addition, elective courses deal with ethics, law, the environment, philosophy, religious studies, psychology, and languages.

About

The Liberal Studies program offered by the Laurentian University is based more on breadth than on the depth of coverage found in most Science programs.

The word ‘liberal’ in the program name refers to the concept of a liberal education, which develops a broad-based maturity.

It is based more on breadth than on the depth of coverage found in a traditional Bachelor of Science degree. This is the most flexible science degree program at Laurentian and students tailor it to suit their particular career goals. It is geared to students who want to obtain a science related degree but who do not necessarily intend to become working scientists. Students are advised to round out the liberal science degree by specializing in one area to ensure a well-balanced education.

Careers

Teaching (elementary and secondary), public relations, science communication, health sciences sector, civil service (provincial and federal), academic/school board, medical school, optometry, degree completion program (x-ray technologists).
