Liberal Studies

As one of the few Liberal Arts and Sciences B.S. degrees in the country, the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS) program provides a well-rounded and multidisciplinary education. The IAS Core curriculum stresses oral and written communication, quantitative and scientific analysis, ethical problem solving, and critical thinking, whereas the IAS Concentration allows students to ask and answer questions from multiple perspectives.

Students interested in earning a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences can contact the Liberal Studies Department ( or 406-496-4275) to speak with a faculty member. 

The Faculty of the Liberal Studies Department stand united for the ideals of diversity, acceptance, and inclusion at our university. We welcome all students to learn to the best of their abilities on our campus in an environment free from racism, sexism, bigotry, harassment, and oppression. We uphold these ideals ourselves, and strongly encourage our colleagues across the university both to uphold these ideals, and to teach them when appropriate to our students as a way to move human society forward.
