Flexibility on campus, too.

Online programs aren't the best fit for everyone. That's why we offer a high level of flexibility and convenience in our Liberal Studies hybrid program. Not only do you have additional options for concentrations, you can also choose classes online, face-to-face, and hybrid formats. For some students, that means graduating even faster.

Before applying, complete the Degree Completion Program Readiness Evaluation Request Form to determine if you meet the minimum requirements to apply to the Liberal Studies Degree Completion Online Program.

The Bachelor of Arts in Leadership and Personalized Studies Online is designed for students who have completed:

  1. A minimum of 60 college credits;
  2. Completion of the UW-Parkside Skills requirements;
  3. Completion of the UW-Parkside Foreign Language requirements;
  4. Completion of the UW-Parkside General Education requirements (Students who have fewer than five General Education courses left to take may be considered for admission); or, completion of an AA degree from an accredited institution;
  5. Each student application will be evaluated by admissions counselors and Liberal Studies advisors. Students who have not completed some of these requirements may be given conditional admission and are expected to complete all requirements needed for a UW-Parkside degree.

Note: Students already enrolled in the on-campus Liberal Studies: Organizational Studies major do not need to re-apply to the online program to take online courses, if they choose.

If you do not meet these requirements, we invite you to consider the Leadership and Personalized Studies Studies major, which offers a high level of flexibility and convenience with online, face-to-face, and hybrid formats in each concentration.

As a liberal studies major completing your degree online, you can pursue a concentration in organizational studies. And, when you graduate, you will be well-prepared for the variety of careers that require understanding humanity's complexity and diversity. These may include the fields of teaching, finance, graphic design, and law. Students may also pursue graduate programs in business, law, and more.
