Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts and Sciences Program (LASI)
Fairmount College is the home for interdisciplinary courses and programs. Among those are academic service courses such as Adult Seminar, Topics in Career Exploration, Global Issues, Introduction to Premedical Professions, and Application Process for Medical and Professional Schools. In these and other courses, students learn more about themselves, university life, preparation for careers, and the foundations of liberal arts and sciences. An interdisciplinary certificate program that enables students to focus coursework from several departments around a unique area — Great Plains Studies — is also offered through LASI. Further, the foundation courses for the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies are part of the LASI range of coursework. More information about LASI, its courses and its programs may be obtained through the LAS Advising Center, 115 Grace Wilkie Hall, or at the advising center webpage.
WSU offers an interdisciplinary Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) degree program for people who wish to pursue a particular topical or interdisciplinary interest at the graduate level, but find the existing programs either too specialized or insufficiently individualized. The MALS program offers students an opportunity to design a program of study to answer their particular needs and interests in a focused, coherent manner.
