Bachelor of Liberal Studies

The B.L.S. degree is designed to give you a strong liberal arts and sciences foundation while allowing you to choose a broad concentration area rather than a specific major. This flexibility makes the degree program unique both in the College and at IU. And if you plan carefully, you may find that you can add multiple minors and certificates to your B.L.S. degree.

The Bachelor of Liberal Studies replaced the Bachelor of General Studies in summer 2014. Talk to a liberal studies advisor to find out how this affects you.
