Liberal Studies

Bachelor’s Degree

University of Maine at Presque Isle

The Bachelor of Liberal Studies Degree Program is an interdisciplinary major in which the student may pursue broad interests or develop a specialized program in areas where majors are not currently offered. The Bachelor of Liberal Studies (B.L.S.) option is designed by the student and the academic advisor to ensure comprehensiveness in the student’s academic experience, while at the same time affording flexibility in fulfilling requirements. The B.L.S. may serve as a terminal degree or as preparation for graduate school, professional school, or employment in business, government or industry.

Program Goals

  • To attract place-bound and distance education majors to UMPI offerings unable to attend onsite courses.
  • To attract part-time as well as full-time online majors.
  • To establish a reputation as an excellent online provider (comparable with our onsite offerings).
  • To enhance our onsite program by attracting individuals who would not otherwise consider becoming resident full-time students.
