Liberal Studies Program

Each student who completes The Liberal Studies program at SRU is given opportunity to explore different ideas and to gain appreciation for several ways of knowing. In this way, SRU hopes to encourage new students to develop intellectual insights and skills that will enable them to enjoy a lifetime of learning.

The Liberal Studies Program at Slippery Rock University is the general education requirement for all academic majors at the University. Because some majors prescribe specific courses within each category, students should use a Liberal Studies Guide along with the academic major guide and My Rock Audit report before making course selections.

  • Students entering prior to Fall 2018 will use a previous Liberal Studies Guide (contact your guidance counselor for information)
  • Students entering Fall 2018 will use the current Liberal Studies Guide

Each goal in the Liberal Studies Program is designed to fulfill the University-Wide Student Learning Outcomes, both listed below.
