Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I get started?

Q: What does the program look like?
A: A major in Liberal Studies provides students with a broad undergraduate education in the liberal arts tradition—the same that you can expect to find in a classroom on Bellarmine’s campus. The curriculum includes Bellarmine’s general education requirements in the Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Theology. You’ll find this is a highly flexible program, and the variety of course available are increasing on a regular basis. Take a look at the current program plan to see what your pathway can include. You may already have a substantial amount of this program complete if you have previous college credit, at Bellarmine or somewhere else.
Q: Do I have to have a certain amount of technology skills to be successful in this program?
A: This program is designed for anyone, especially for those who don’t consider themselves tech-savvy. If you know how to browse the Internet, you’ll be fine in this program! We’ll support you along the way.
Q: Will I have to be online at a certain time every day for class?
A: Typically, courses in this program do not require you to be online at pre-determined times; you’ll have the flexibility to meet weekly deadlines on your own time and schedule. If regular and consistent time commitments are required, those will be noted in the course description when you register.
Q: I have previous college credit. Can I transfer that in?
A: Yes! Contact our Admissions Office to get this ball rolling. It’s possible you’re already closer to a bachelor’s degree than you realize.
