What is Liberal Studies?

Liberal Studies is a college major designed as a sort of catch-all for those dabbling in a number of established majors. The "liberal" part simply means that the student's primary courses are in the College of Arts and Sciences. For example, say that at Acme University, students are required to take 80 credits in their major. Aaliyah instead takes 20 credits in Physics, 20 credits in History, .
