The University of Texas at Arlington Reviews - Bachelor's in Liberal StudiesSee reviews of all programs at The University of Texas at Arlington
UTA is a great school with a unique atmosphere. Unlike most campuses, UTA is a primarily commuter campus with many students living off campus. This, for me, gave it an atmosphere of immediacy. When a group activity was necessary most people did not waste time in accomplishing their goals. My specific program was university studies, it was necessary for me to earn this degree as I was in a hurry to graduate and I had a lot of random credits from my community college days. The staff at the Universit College were great and I developed great relationships with those people that I still enjoy today. The benefit of the degree itself was great, while I do not major in any one subject I was able to gain valuable insight into three different areas of study which made my eventual graduate studies much more manageable.
THe University of Texas at Arlington is a good school. I've enjoyed my time there very much. THe staff and faculy are very dedicated to their students and help facilitate numerous opportunities for internships and jobs along the way. The tuition is not terribly expensive, the school offers lots of great amenities and services.

My degree was in physical education and we also had to take some exercise science classes and a few sciences like Anatomy and Physiology 1 & 2. I teach math so I took math in addition to those so I feel really well rounded in my education.
I went to school to study something I liked as opposed to something that would better my standing in this life. Should have listened to my dad. :)
I am a teacher. I would not have a job without my degree. It is a requirement.
