Undergraduate Majors, Minors & Programs of Study
The Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) programs are flexible and focused degrees emphasizing disciplinary concentration in interdisciplinary contexts. These versatile degrees draw on the rich resources and faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences.
The Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Sciences is offered at both the Macomb and Quad Cities campuses of Western Illinois University. Involving focused study in the traditional areas of liberal education (Humanities, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences/Mathematics), the degree can be tailored to meet students’ academic needs and interests. The Bachelor of LAS equips students with the transferable skills most valued by employers; it is also excellent preparation for graduate education.
The degree is especially attractive to transfer students; in most cases, students entering the LAS program with an Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science degree should be able to complete the program within four semesters.

Through participation in the LAS program, students will have the opportunity to study with a highly qualified and diverse faculty, who hold advanced degrees from prestigious institutions from throughout the United States and from around the world.
