Liberal Arts Core

Advising Students on LAC

When advising students on Liberal Arts Core courses, it is important to convey the importance of Liberal Arts Core courses in the students' education. These are not just courses to "get out of the way" nor are they gatekeepers to keep students out of their major courses. Here are some tips on advising students on the Liberal Arts Core.

  • Utilize the Entire LAC Advising Guide when helping students determine LAC requirements.
  • Promote the positive experiences of learning about a wide variety of things.

  • For students who have not decided on a major, emphasize the exploratory nature of the Liberal Arts Core courses.

  • Refer to "Why the Liberal Arts Core?" for additional ideas.
