The campus theatre production each semester provides many opportunities for LAS students to excercise their creativity.
A liberal arts degree combines a classic liberal arts education with today's need for flexibility and practical skills.
Letters, Arts, and Sciences students work with faculty to design a program of study focusing on research proficiency, critical thinking, application of theory, and communication skills.
Letters, Arts, and Sciences graduates are working in management, finance, law, communications, marketing or pursuing graduate degrees.
Whether you have earned an associate degree, have completed some college credits, or are looking to enter college for the first time, Letters, Arts, and Sciences (LASCC) may provide you the opportunity to design a program that touches upon several fields of study. One graduate used the LASCC degree to combine course work in English and science to prepare for a profession as a science writer.
You will work with our Letters, Arts, and Sciences program coordinator to explore your interests and design a proposal to earn your degree. Your proposal will investigate a theme from the perspective of three subject areas, as long as it does not duplicate an existing major. You may earn your degree through a combination of day and evening classes, web-based classes, or independent study with a member of our faculty.
Penn State Greater Allegheny offers the Liberal Studies option - the broadest option, allowing a grouping of courses from disciplines within and outside the Liberal Arts.
