Programs in Liberal Studies (BA)
A small college with specialized programs in administration, Nichols considers basic to our understanding of human activities those liberal disciplines upon which the study of administration is founded – namely the Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, Mathematics, History, and the Arts and Humanities. The College has combined coursework required of all Nichols students with carefully selected upper-level offerings to provide programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree with majors in Communication, Criminal Justice, Economics, English, History, Mathematics and Psychology.
These programs provide a strong background for a variety of careers, as well as give students a foundation for advanced graduate studies. Through the courses in their majors, students earning Bachelor of Arts degrees develop a mastery of the knowledge, methods, and theories pertinent to their areas of concentration. The liberal studies curriculum produces a well-rounded graduate who is capable of critical and logical thinking; has knowledge of scientific, historical and social phenomena; has an appreciation of aesthetic and ethical aspects of life; is a competent communicator; can think scientifically and quantitatively; and is capable of lifelong learning.
