The Liberal Arts major at Bethany Lutheran College is cross-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary. It integrates the significant ways of looking at reality developed in the Western world — arts and letters, theology, mathematics, physical sciences, and social sciences — in the quest for truth, justice, and beauty.


Students in the Liberal Arts program at the Bethany Lutheran College should declare liberal arts as their intended major as early in their college career as possible by filing the Declaration of Major/Change of Advisor form with the registrar. The student’s advisor should be from the area of the student’s concentration, and must be approved by the director of the liberal arts major. 

Application for formal acceptance into the major, however, must be made through the student’s advisor at the end of the sophomore year. Students must also have a GPA of 2.0 or above.

Learning Outcomes

The goal of the liberal arts major is to produce creative and resourceful thinkers who are:

  • Capable of intellectual, spiritual, moral vigor; critical and creative thought; and coherent and persuasive communication of ideas.
  • Knowledgeable about and sensitive to their own and others; social, cultural, historical and religious perspectives.
  • Aware of the physical world in which they live.
  • Capable of translating their education into the civic sensibilities needed to serve in church and society.
  • Capable of pursuing a deeper study of a particular discipline or topic that spans the disciplines.

Programme Structure

  • Integral to the liberal arts major are concentrations. The concentrations serve as a focal point for the major, adding disciplinary depth. 
  • A student may not have both a concentration and a minor in the same area. RELG489 International Study Tour may apply as an upper division elective for some concentrations, subject to approval by the director of the liberal arts major on an individual basis.
