Adult Degree Completion Program

What might the curricula look like for the proposed adult degree completion program?

Two degree programs have been proposed, a bachelor's degree in liberal studies (BLS) and a bachelor's degree in professional studies (BPS). The sample curricula  are built upon courses students will have completed while earning an associate degree like those offered by Northlake College. The five foundations courses, for example FND 3304 The American Project, are intended as bridge courses that build upon what students have learned in courses taken at other colleges and lead them into the liberal arts approach of the University of Dallas.
