About Us

The Department of Liberal Studies at Florida International University offers degrees in Liberal Studies and Interdisciplinary Studies. Both programs provide an eclectic education for students who do not want to be tied down to conventional majors. Students choose their own classes from a range of Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences and can essentially design their own program to match their specific interests and career goals.

To help students connect their academic experiences with their aspirations for the future, our Department offers two unique online courses which focus on the transition from college to career. These courses are taught by an academically diverse group of adjunct faculty members who bring their passion for student success into our virtual classrooms.

We provide advising at both campuses in Miami-Dade County and have a dedicated online advisor who works with our fully online Interdisciplinary Studies students.
