The faculty and staff of the Liberal Studies Department are eager to assist you in having a successful academic experience here at Cal Poly Pomona. As a student in Liberal Studies, you will become well acquainted with fellow students and your professors through close contact in small classes, advising, clubs, and departmental events.
Liberal Studies majors pursue a variety of careers – elementary teaching, special education teaching, and an enormous variety of other options (law, social work, independent business, just to name a few). The solid Liberal Arts background in our programs and our emphases on communication and critical thinking will enable you to excel in most any endeavor.
The information on this site should help you become more knowledgeable about our programs and events, so please consult it frequently as you determine which courses to take each quarter and in which events to participate. The faculty and staff welcome visits from students. Students should establish especially close contact with Berlinda Crawford, who is the departmental academic advisor. It is especially important to see Berlinda before you register for your 1st and 2nd quarters as a Liberal Studies major, and before you register for each of your last two quarters at Cal Poly Pomona – we want to do our best to make sure that you stay on track for graduation in the quarter you wish to graduate.
We look forward to getting to know you!
