On July 20, 1985, the state of Missouri charged Truman State University with
serving as the state's premier public liberal arts and sciences university. In
order to meet this commitment to the people of Missouri, the Truman faculty and
administration created the Liberal Studies Program, the general education
curriculum undergraduates complete in order to receive a Truman degree.
The Liberal Studies Program provides students with a broad
educational experience, focusing on:
students should have in order to succeed in their liberal
studies and major course work;
Modes of Inquiry
by which students may approach problems and issues in different
academic disciplines; and
Perspectives that allow students to understand and
appreciate better the knowledge they have gained as a result of
their educational experience at Truman.
