Online Option

Students looking for flexibility in their degree program should seriously consider the on line Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) option. While a different experience than a traditional, classroom-based education, the online option offers a number of benefits to students.

BGSU's on line courses allow students to log into their classes or interact with peers via blogs and discussion boards at their convenience. BGSU faculty use the Canvas community system as the primary method of delivering on line courses. Canvas access is available to students through the MyBGSU portal.

The online Bachelor of Liberal Studies is best for students who have completed a minimum of 60 hours towards the Liberal Studies major through previous coursework at BGSU or through another college or university. To determine if this option would be plausible for you complete the following steps:

  1. Apply for Readmission (if a former BGSU student) or Apply for Admission (if never attended BGSU)
  2. Submit your official transcripts from other intuitions of higher education to the BGSU Office of Transfer Evaluation.
  3. Once your transcripts have been reviewed speak with a representative from the Office of Non-Traditional and Military Student Services at 419-372- 8136.
  4. Review the remaining degree requirements with an academic advisor from the College of Arts and Sciences at 419-372-2015.
  5. Other distance programs can be discussed by calling ECampus at 419-372-3226.
