Liberal Arts

The Liberal Arts major is a student-driven program that allows you to customize your studies to a specific area of your individual interest.

In consultation with your faculty adviser and the Liberal Arts degree coordinator, you’ll choose 10 courses to complete the major.

You can elect to focus your studies in a specific area of interest not covered by an existing Bentley major — for example, behavioral sciences or modern languages.

Another option is to choose courses from several departments to create an interdisciplinary major with a specific focus. The major also requires that you develop Intermediate II competency in a modern language.

Building bonds in Ecuador

Bentley is known for both its extensive service-learning and study abroad opportunities. Recently, the two came together when 16 students traveled to Ecuador over Spring Break for an international service-learning experience in the heart of the indigenous Mondaña community, deep in the Amazon rainforest. While there, they worked alongside community members to build the foundation for doctors’ residences at a new health clinic.
