The LAES degree is now a BS!
We are excited to announce that the Liberal Arts & Engineering Studies (LAES) degree is now a BS! Beginning Spring 2019, all LAES graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science degree instead of a Bachelor of Arts.
*Approved by the CSU Chancellor’s Office on 9/12/18.
**Neither coursework nor program structure have been altered to accommodate this change from a BA to a BS. As a BA, the LAES degree met all the same requirements as the newly designated BS degree.
