Liberal Arts

Be well-rounded and adaptable in a changing professional landscape.

Many employers seek individuals with a broad educational background that focuses on writing, analyzing, evaluating and reasoning. These skills are integral to the coursework in the liberal arts program.

Our liberal arts degrees are designed for those who want an interdisciplinary liberal arts degree. Students will be exposed to some of the best thinking from around the world through a broadly based educational experience.

Our students have the opportunity to develop their ability to write well, communicate effectively, work with groups, engage in problem solving, and think critically — timeless skills that are applicable to every part of life. Face-to-face, classroom-based learning experiences are valued in the program, although some classes may be offered online or as in-class/online hybrid experiences.
