The IUP Mission Statement (that was in effect when the the Liberal Studies program was assessed by Middle States in 1995) committed the university to an undergraduate education “that balances breadth and depth”; while major programs provide depth, the Liberal Studies component gives breadth. It does so by requiring study in each major area of knowledge—humanities (literature, history, and philosophy, or religious studies), fine arts, natural sciences, social sciences, and health and wellness.
The Liberal Studies program, as expressed by its goals and realized in its implementation, addresses several objectives in the Mission Statement.
