The Mission of the Liberal Studies Program is to prepare students to
live responsible, productive, and creative lives as citizens of a
dramatically changing world. To accomplish this mission Northern
Arizona University provides a Liberal Studies Program that challenges
students to gain a deeper understanding of the natural environment and
the world’s peoples, to explore the traditions and legacies that have
created the dynamics and tensions that shape the world, to examine their
potential contributions to society, and thus to better determine their
own places in that world.
