Degree Completion Program

The Liberal Studies Degree Completion Program is for students who have completed Sonoma State's junior transfer requirements. It offers an alternative route to a Bachelor of Arts degree for working adults with schedules that do not permit them to attend regular campus classes. Course instruction is organized around one on-campus meeting for a full Saturday each month, combined with weekly online seminars and ongoing reading and writing assignments. Coursework in the program is designed to investigate current issues and to allow students to explore their own interests.

Requirements for the Major:

LIBS 380: Identity and Society (10 units)
LIBS 381: Technology and the Environment (10 units)
LIBS 382: Work and the Global Future (10 units)
LIBS 470: Senior Project—Independent Study (10 units)

General education courses and electives may be required in addition to transfer units to complete Sonoma State University graduation requirements.

Students stay with their cohort throughout the program as different professors guide the seminars each semester. For individual pre-admissions counseling, please contact Administrative Coordinator Beth Warner at (707) 664-3977 or at beth.warner@sonoma.edu. Further information may be found at SSU's Extended Education website.

Close communication between students and faculty is an important element of the Hutchins School.
