Career & Grad School Info

When I transferred to the SSU Liberal Studies Program, I was looking into teaching. After three semesters in the program I’m now more interested in becoming a school counselor.” --Yanira Muniz, LIBS B.A. 2018

Many opportunities are available to students who earn a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies. Many students use the Liberal Studies degree to improve their current employment standing. Graduates also find entry into careers in business, government, and social service agencies like adult and family services, criminal justice, and health and welfare. Our Career Outlook page lists careers by category and provides career forecast (anticipated growth rates, salary) information for select careers.  With additional coursework in a teacher credential program (not currently available within the Ukiah major), some Liberal Studies graduates become K-12 teachers. Others use their bachelor's degree as a springboard to graduate studies in a variety of fields including counseling, law, or library science, among others.
