DescriptionVIU's Liberal Studies program is for those who want to explore it all: history, humanities, liberal arts and sciences, literature, music, philosophy and more. In liberal studies, students strive to gain a deeper understanding of who we are and how our values and perspectives have been shaped by certain cultural legacies.

This unique liberal arts program program is taught in small seminars where students engage in and become experts in critical thinking, communication and how to creatively adapt to new challenges, skills that are of high importance and carry over well to future careers and graduate school.
