The broadest preparation for admission into a professional program. An avenue for adding a bachelor’s degree to an already existing technical degree or licensure certificate. A degree option with maximum flexibility. A distance-education option for a KU degree. A degree that provides students the opportunity to build the skills and knowledge employers indicate are required for success in our changing economy and world community — skills that are limited in current college graduates. The B.G.S. Liberal Arts and Sciences degree option is: Not an “Easy Out” degree option. Academic standards are the same for all degrees granted by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Not a quick option for a bachelor’s degree.  (A minimum of 120 hours required, including degree specific coursework.) Not an option in which students may pursue majors or minors in the College.

Bachelor of Arts in Physics

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/physics-astronomy/ba-physics/

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in History

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/history/ba-bgs/

Why study history? Who? What? Where? When? are the questions most commonly associated with the study of history. But these are only bits of information, bubbles on a multiple-choice test. They are not history. They are the building blocks of history, parts that when put together in the right way become history. History does not just record a sequence of events in the past. The practice of history examines change overtime and tries to understand the forces that contributed to those changes. Historians are most interested in questions that begin by asking ‘why’ or ‘how.’ These questions demand complex answers about who we are, how we have come to where we are, and what forces have shaped humanity through time. How did Spanish conquistadors manage to defeat the Aztec Empire? Why did Napoleon try to conquer Europe? How did the Industrial Revolution contribute to global warming? Why did Taiwan break off from mainland China? These questions demand complex answers. In trying to come up with those answers historians turn to the building blocks of who, what, where, and when to assemble the historical evidence in a way that answers the big question.  In a culture that places primary value only on living in the present, studying history can offer a rare foundation for critiquing or at least comprehending the current state of the world. Studying history helps you cut through the myths that cloud our understanding of ourselves and others, and offers a depth of comprehension that few other disciplines can promise. The following are some key characteristics of the history department and major: Useful : The study of history at the collegiate level emphasizes vital lifelong skills. These include critical thinking, analysis of qualitative and quantitative sources, research methods and practices, persuasive writing, and articulate speaking. The skills acquired through historical study can be transferred easily to any number of future careers and occupations. Graduates with KU History degrees have go on to become lawyers, business professionals, teachers, consultants, journalists, social workers, archivists, civil servants, and even medical doctors. Welcoming:  Few limits exist to what you may study. Politics, sexual relations, art, labor, literature, rebellion, war - the Department of History draws no boundaries between what you may and may not examine. To that end it also shares students and faculty with other programs such as African and African American Studies,  Women and Gender Studies, Environmental Studies, Global and International Studies, Indigenous Studies, and all of the geographical area studies programs. Flexible : Students must take only two required courses - a course on historical methods ( HIST 301 ) and a senior research seminar ( HIST 696 ) or honors thesis ( HIST 690 & HIST 691 ). Because few courses have sequential prerequisites, History is easy to take as a minor or as a second major. Worldly : History is excellent preparation for travel and work abroad, and around thirty majors yearly participate in KU’s  Study Abroad  program. The Department of History itself offers overseas opportunities, such as a pre-law institute at Cambridge University. Intimate :  Courses  in the department are usually small, and the larger courses always include trained Graduate Teaching Assistants to give individual attention and feedback. All students take at least two seminars of no more than fifteen students, and honors students work one-on-one with a faculty member. Further, students in the Department have organized movie nights, lectures, and informal get-togethers, so you are never lost in the crowd. Prominent:    Faculty  in the department are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their field, and they bring this advanced knowledge to bear on their teaching. Resourceful:  Resources for history research at KU are rich. Watson and Anschutz libraries help make up a major research library collection, and the Spencer Research Library offers such resources as the Wilcox Collection on extremist politics, the University Archives, and major collections in British and Irish history, among others.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Anthropology

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/anthropology/ba-bgs/

The Anthropology Department at the University of Kansas Anthropologists are concerned with the origin, history, and future of the human species. Our mission is to further our understanding of past and present human societies in their cultural, biological, and environmental contexts. As flows of people, ideas, money, and goods are crossing borders at unprecedented speeds, we are encountering human diversity now, more than ever before. The discipline provides students the knowledge and skills they will need to navigate these complex, multicultural, and rapidly changing worlds. Because we study what it is to be human, the field is one of the most wide-ranging of the academic disciplines. There are four main subdisciplines of anthropology: Archaeology is concerned with studying the human past based on the material culture left behind. Biological or physical anthropology is concerned with human evolution and variation. Linguistic anthropology focuses on the relationship between language and culture, as well as the documentation of the history and evolution of languages over time and across space. Cultural anthropology is concerned with the many ways humans organize themselves to live together, questioning past and present patterns of meaning and power relationships on local and global scales. Anthropologists across all of the subdisciplines apply holistic, comparative, and evolutionary perspectives and a range of methodologies in their research. We are committed to fieldwork and the application of this knowledge to helping people better understand one another. Why Study Anthropology? Students have many reasons for wanting to major in anthropology. Some are curious about the origins of the human species. Others are fascinated the diversity of human experiences in ancient and modern periods. Some students intend to pursue international careers, where they will use languages and work in cultural contexts very different from those in which they were raised. Others plan to work in museums collecting and curating human cultural resources. Some wish to pursue graduate training in one of the field’s subdisciplines, while others seek to use their anthropological training as preparation for professional schools, including law, medicine, public health, journalism, business, and engineering. There are many professions where the broad scientific, humanistic, and multicultural knowledge available through the study of anthropology can be useful—in education, healthcare, law, social work, business, human resources, public affairs, cultural resource management, or laboratory research. Anthropological Research Opportunities at KU Laboratory of Biological Anthropology (LBA):  Founded in 1975, the LBA was established as a research center of the University of Kansas. The LBA has supported graduate and undergraduate student research in biological anthropology, human genetics, and genetic epidemiology. Archaeological Research Center:  Located in historic Spooner Hall on the main campus, the archaeology laboratory offers research space and support to Anthropology faculty and graduate students, Archaeology staff, Museum Studies interns, affiliate curators and research associates and visiting scholars. Field Schools:  Anthropology faculty offer field schools in archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Undergraduates and graduate students have conducted independent and collaborative research in the United States, including Alaska; Mexico, Central, and South America; sub-Saharan Africa; and Asia.  For specific questions about our program, please contact us : The University of Kansas Department of Anthropology Undergraduate Program 1415 Jayhawk Blvd., 622 Fraser Hall Lawrence, KS 66045 E-mail:  kuanthro@ku.edu Phone: (785) 864-2630 Fax: (785) 864-5224 http://anthropology.ku.edu/overview-ba-anthropology

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Philosophy

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/philosophy/ba-bgs/

In philosophy we ask big, important questions.  While asking such questions is easy, answering them is difficult.  Because these questions are often abstract and vague, it is necessary to use precise reasoning and analysis to clarify what exactly it is we are asking.  Only then can we attempt to develop answers.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Sociology

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/sociology/ba-bgs/

The study of sociology provides valuable insights into the social institutions and processes that shape human behaviors, histories, and opportunities.  Sociologists focus on the actions, beliefs, values, norms, organizations, institutions, and other social forces that characterize a society and shape people's lives.  It directs attention to how the parts of society fit together as well as the causes and consequences of social change.  The insight gained from the study of sociology leads to a greater understanding of how formal and informal rules of society contribute to different opportunities and constraints for different groups of individuals, and how these change over time.  As a scientific discipline, sociology teaches students how to use empirical data to understand current social realities and act effectively on the central issues of our time. Few academic disciplines have such a broad scope and relevance.

Bachelor of Arts in Spanish

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/spanish-portuguese/ba/

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Linguistics

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/linguistics/ba-bgs/

Why study Linguistics Because language is the window into the mind. Linguistics provides an understanding of the human capacity to acquire, perceive, and produce language and of language’s role in contemporary society. B.A./B.G.S. Overview The department offers a broad range of courses that provide a basic understanding of human language and communication. Linguistics courses examine features of language that underlie the human capacity to express concepts and communicate ideas. The courses address the connections between language, brain, culture, mind, and history. The major gives students a basic understanding of the human capacity to acquire, perceive, and produce language and of language’s role in contemporary society. Linguistics is a superb preparation for careers that require expertise in the use of language as a means of communication, e.g., business, communications, personnel administration, teaching, health care, and social service. Many majors pursue graduate study in education, law, psychology, computer science, speech and hearing sciences, and languages. A degree in Linguistics may also be combined with a Research Experience Certification through the KU Research Program (REP) . KU's Research Experience Program (REP) is an undergraduate certificate program in which students learn content and skills via classes, apply and integrate what they've learned via a research/creative project, present the project, and then reflect on the progress they've made. Completion of the REP certificate appears on a student's official transcript.  Please speak with the Linguistics Undergraduate Research Coordinator, Dr. Fiorentino ( fiorentino@ku.edu ), if you are interested in pursuing Research Experience Program certification as part of your Linguistics degree. You can also combine your degree in Linguistics with a Global Awareness Certification through the Global Awareness Program (GAP ) . KU’s Global Awareness Program (GAP) is an undergraduate certificate program in which you can expand your cultural knowledge and navigate multiple perspectives. GAP tracks your progress on the three components: Academic , On-Campus Activities with a global focus , and/or International Experience (Two-out-of-three components needed to earn the certificate.) Completion of the GAP certificate appears on a student's official transcript.  Please speak with the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Minai ( minai@ku.edu ), if you are interested in pursuing Global Awareness Program certification as part of your Linguistics degree.

Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/chemistry/ba/

Why study chemistry? At KU Chemistry, we have faculty dedicated to mentoring both undergraduate and graduate students and to helping each student achieve scientific maturity. In addition to required classroom and laboratory courses, options exist for doing research in exciting areas of mainstream chemistry, including emerging fields of microfluidics, precision medicine and sustainable catalysis. Undergraduate Program The undergraduate program in the Department of Chemistry has two primary missions. One of these is to help its majors attain a mastery of the discipline in preparation for further study in chemistry or a chemical science, or for immediate employment in chemistry. The other is to provide an opportunity for students majoring in other disciplines to acquire a basic knowledge of the fundamental areas of chemistry. The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, a rigorous program certified by the American Chemical Society, consists of a full spectrum of chemistry courses as well as supporting courses in mathematics and physics, and is designed to prepare students for a professional career in chemistry. The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree program, with fewer required courses, allows students to obtain a broader knowledge of areas outside of chemistry, or to tailor their chemistry program for specific or unique objectives. We also offer a   Minor   in chemistry for those seeking a secondary area of study.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Political Science

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/political-science/ba-bgs/

Because political science advances our understanding of politics, power, governance, and public policy in the United States and across the globe.  In the broadest sense, political science is the study of governments and governmental procedures.  Political Science is as old as civilization, because people always have been interested in their government and in their leaders.  But political science as it is thought today, as one of the social sciences, is a comparatively new discipline.  It developed in the United States during the last century as political scientists developed an ability to make increasingly scientific observations of government.  Political scientists are concerned with origins and sources of governmental organizations, their growth, and their decline, as well as with the processes and structure of government.  Ask yourself, Am I interested in public affairs?  Am I a good analytical and critical thinker?  Am I curious about the world and it's workings?  Do I communicate well orally and in writing?  Do I want to be a knowledgeable citizen?  Am I interested in the relationship between government and the people?  Am I curious about how decisions and made and how conflicts are resolved?  

Accelerated Master of Arts in English

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/english/ama/

Only current KU undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the Accelerated MA program. If you are not a current undergraduate student at KU, please review the admission requirements for the regular MA program.
