If you have a wide variety of academic interests or if you are currently uncertain about a specific academic program in which to specialize, the Liberal Arts program may be for you.
Courses in the Liberal Arts program serve two purposes: (1) they may be used toward an Associate of Science degree in Liberal Arts at CVTC; and (2) they may transfer to a university to be included in a baccalaureate (4-year) degree from that university. CVTC's three principal partners in the Liberal Arts program are the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
For students who have not chosen a major field of post-secondary study, enrolling in the Liberal Arts program will offer a variety of general education courses that may prove helpful in that selection process while, at the same time, fulfilling many requirements of a university baccalaureate program.
Students who have chosen a major field of post-secondary study should contact the university to which they may transfer to verify how each of these general education courses will fit into the chosen program.
CVTC counselors are available to assist in the course selection process to assure that selected courses will meet the minimum credit requirements of each area of the Liberal Arts program while also achieving the degree requirements of a specific university baccalaureate program.
