Resources

Liberty University’s educational philosophy is based on the integration of fundamental Christian beliefs and the liberal arts tradition. Its programs are designed to prepare students to assume leadership roles in society. 

An undergraduate curriculum of required basic General Education courses serves as a foundation for later specialization in any of our majors. In addition, all freshmen students are required to demonstrate proficiency in technology skills by passing a computer competency assessment or by completing the appropriate Information Technology course.
