A LIBERAL ARTS DEGREE
OPENS A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES

Liberal arts graduates are exposed to a broad spectrum of knowledge — in art, language, literature, communications, history, and the sciences. They develop the vital skills of critical thinking, writing, and oral communication, as well as the technological competence that is critical in today’s job market. Liberal arts graduates possess the intellect, flexibility, and varied skills that enable them to adjust to future changes in the world and the workplace. In short, a degree in the liberal arts will prepare you for much more than just a job. It will prepare you for a lifetime.

  In the School of New Resources, process, content, and conscious reflection are integrated into the curriculum to transform the liberal arts into the life arts. Through core seminars, you will explore subject areas beyond the confines of a single discipline in such courses as the Human Body, Urban Community, American Experience, and Science and Human Values.
