Social Sciences

Bachelor of Liberal Studies

The Social Science major offers adult and part-time students an opportunity to consider critically the ways that human beings shape and inhabit the world. The concentration offers students a multi-disciplinary approach to knowledge, including such fields as Criminal Justice, Forensic Science, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology.  Complementary courses in the humanities will round out students’ appreciation of the complexity of human understanding and the richness of these traditions of learning. 

As a multi-disciplinary program, the Social Science major offers a firm foundation in the liberal arts as well as a practical basis for a variety of careers and professional options. The pursuit of a Bachelor of Liberal Studies Degree provides experience in writing, research and praxis, which can prepare students for graduate or professional studies, as well as the resources to develop as reflective, competent, conscientious world citizens, and as life-long learners. 

As part of Loyola’s mission to educate the whole person, the Liberal Studies Program offers opportunities to acquire theoretical and practical understanding, to develop habits of critical thinking, to acquire oral and written communication skills, to apply learning to life and professional responsibilities, and to serve the larger life community. 

The mission of the Liberal Studies major is conducted through on-campus and distance education programs that serve the greater New Orleans area, particularly those who might not otherwise benefit from the educational resources of Loyola University New Orleans.
