All on-campus accelerated evening courses offered spring semester apply toward the Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree. The BLS degree provides students an opportunity to earn a general studies degree in liberal arts by attending only evening classes and without having to enroll in full-time study on campus. The degree offers a flexible curriculum and can be tailored toward a new career, career advancement or graduate school preparation.

"We are pleased to offer a flexible program of courses to meet the needs of adults with a wide range of other responsibilities and an interest in continuing or starting their education,'" said Edwin Lewis, associate provost at ISU.

In addition to on-campus courses, the university offers BLS degree candidates evening ISU courses on the Des Moines Area Community College campus in Ankeny and over the Iowa Communications Network.
