Liberal Arts

The Liberal Arts major is designed to take students on an interdisciplinary journey through Humanities, Art, Science and Literature. Mastering the skills of inquiry, analysis and innovation, students will expand their knowledge across a broad array of topics and issues, both old and new. The Liberal Arts major is deliberately broad and diverse, rather than narrow and specialized, with the objective of preparing students for an increasingly multi-cultural, interdependent, and dynamic world. Students in this major will obtain a well-rounded academic foundation through an array of courses in traditional Liberal Arts disciplines, structured around focused fields of study. Additionally, they will master the ability to think critically and communicate effectively across a multitude of subject areas, fostering a confident, informed, dynamic and independent worldview.

What You'll Study

A Liberal Arts major puts you in control. You'll work with humanities faculty to develop a program unique to you. A Liberal Arts major will prepare you for graduate school or many career fields:

  • Education
  • Law
  • Business
  • Politics
  • Ministry
