A Program for Students with Unique Career Goals

Point Park University's liberal studies degree program is for the individually-minded, creative student. It brings together disciplines, integrates inquiry and pioneers academic focus by opening new horizons of thought and understanding.

We provide integrated curriculum for our undergraduates with unique goals not necessarily met by more traditional majors.

Students synthesize an area of focus out of two or more areas of concentration, and in the spirit of the liberal arts, are exposed to a breadth and depth of research and coursework.

Our combination of breadth of study and precision of focus constitutes the heart of both the program and the Point Park University experience.

Transfer and Non-Traditional Students

Applied arts

If you can imagine it in the arts, you can do it, and at Point Park University, the rich possibilities of creativity are available to you in the applied arts professional option. Defining the “arts” in broad terms, this concentration is inclusive of all the modes of visual, technological, graphic, instrumental, 3-D and experimental arts — as well as those in mulitimedia and beyond. 

With many possibilities for internships, this creative concentration is true to its title in allowing you to help design the concentration focused on your creative interests. This is a concentration as creative as you are.

Information Technology, International Studies, Public Administration and Self Design

The remainder of the professional options offer similar unique perspectives in their respective fields. They are all set within a unique core curriculum focused on the liberal arts that adds new perspectives to these career choices with a course of study you help define.
