Bachelor of Liberal Studies, B.L.S.

The Bachelor of Liberal Studies (B.L.S.) program is offered by the three Iowa Regents’ Universities: University of Northern Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Iowa. The purpose of the B.L.S. is to offer educational opportunities to those students who are unable to attend college as full-time, on-campus students. Students often use guided independent study and other distance learning opportunities to earn credit. This major may not be declared with any other major.

Students should meet with the Bachelor of Liberal Studies Coordinator to design their plan of study.
