In the School of Liberal Arts we are driven by the talents you bring to us and that do so much to enrich the quality of life in every community. If your talent is music, art, theatre, or creative writing, Liberal Arts is the place for you. If law, government, journalism, or graduate school is in your future, Liberal Arts is the place to start.
Our BA/BS degrees in Rural Studies are unique in the country and cutting edge, offering tracks in Politics & Modern Cultures, Writing & Communication, and Agricultural Communication. Each of these interdisciplinary tracks will prepare you to contribute to and maintain the vitality of rural areas either through your own work in these communities or by serving as a liaison to the government offices or corporate institutions that make policy for and decisions regarding rural areas. Regardless of the track, the program emphasizes the movement from theory to practice in classes that allow you to work in real-world settings and will also prepare you for graduate school in English, Political Science, History, Ag Comm, or Law School.
