UC Blue Ash College

Liberal Arts Program

Interested in the humanities, such as English, political science, or history? UC Blue Ash can prepare you for a four-year degree in one of these disciplines with our two-year program in liberal arts.

The Liberal Arts program is designed for students who want to start their education at UC Blue Ash, but complete their BA or BS from UC's McMicken College of Arts and Sciences (A&S). Once you complete the coursework at UC Blue Ash, you can transfer to more than 30 programs at the Uptown Campus, including history, English, political science, Africana studies, women's studies, and philosophy.

In addition to fulfilling all of the core requirements for a bachelor's degree, the Liberal Arts program helps you develop core skills in critical thinking and analysis that are vital to successful undergraduate education. The program starts with Introduction to the Liberal Arts, a first-year seminar, where you will develop writing, communication, and critical thinking skills, and explore the disciplines that you can major in once you transfer. The Liberal Arts program also offers flexibility. If you are unsure about a major, you can make steady progress toward a degree, and you don't have to officially declare until you transfer. Finally, a liberal arts education prepares students for a variety of careers in education, public service, and business, and is especially helpful for those considering graduate study, especially law school.
