Concentration  15 credit hours

If a student chooses this option, then the student must complete a course of study created by the Program Coordinator for Liberal Studies that is based on the student's interests. The course of study can be composed of courses from two or more disciplines that are focused on a common theme. For Liberal Studies, a student's concentration cannot be in an area that has a minor at William Peace University. For example, a student cannot have a Concentration in Anthropology because William Peace University already has a minor in that area.

Minor  18-20 credit hours

If a student chooses this option, then the student must complete the minor requirements for a minor offered at William Peace University. The minor can be either in a Liberal Studies area or in a non-Liberal Studies area. 

General Electives  14-22 credit hours
