Liberal Arts   

Does unlocking the mysteries of the human mind and spirit fascinate you? Do you treasure diving below the surface of historical and contemporary literature or see yourself as the editor or writer of the next best seller? Can you envision the courage and fear encountered by soldiers on the battlefields of the past or the impacts of those battles? Students in liberal arts are broadly prepared to investigate and understand the human condition, and to function as reflective citizens in local and global communities. While persons selecting this degree obtain basic preparation for careers in education, English, law, business, government, politics, theatre, the arts, or communications, the primary focus of liberal arts is the social and intellectual development of the individual. Further, given the student's breadth of exposure to multiple disciplines in this degree, individuals who are uncertain of their academic majors or career goals will find liberal arts a good place to begin their education.
