A Liberal Arts degree cultivates in students practices of critical thinking that integrate knowledge of history, language arts, philosophy, visual and performing arts, religious studies, and social sciences into a coherent, but adaptable perspective. Students acquire a broad-based education to become proficient readers, writers, speakers, and problem solvers. They are prepared for both further study in these fields and careers that call for creative/innovative thinking, effective communication, sound interpersonal skills, and flexibility. Studying the Liberal Arts also kindles a deep, lasting commitment to life-long learning, personal growth, cultural diversity, civic engagement, and ethical living.
