What is Letters, Arts, and Sciences (LAS)?

You are here: Home / Current Students / Undergraduate Students / Education / Letters, Arts, and Sciences

Letters, Arts, and Sciences is a multi-disciplinary major that gives students the opportunity to design their own program within certain prescribed boundaries. With the assistance of an adviser, students develop a unique academic program that thematically links courses from different disciplines. This individualized course of study is for highly motivated students whose interests range across various fields of study and who do not feel that an established, interdisciplinary major will fit their needs.

What are the requirements for the LAS major?

To earn a bachelor of arts degree in Letters, Arts, and Sciences, a minimum of 120 credits is required in the following areas:

General Education: 45 credits 
B.A. Degree Requirements: 12 – 24 credits 
Major Requirements: 36 credits
(all major courses must be completed with a “C” or above)
Electives: 18 – 30 credits

What do I do if I am interested in LAS?

We recommend that you first read the Letters, Arts, and Sciences Student Guide (available online below). Once you have read the student Guide, you may schedule an appointment with LAS Adviser, Mia Parise.
