Study in the liberal arts and sciences builds the ability to be an integrative thinker: a person who can see and create connections between different bodies of knowledge and across disciplinary boundaries.

 

Through exposure to complex, real-world issues in history, the humanities and the social sciences, our students become graduates who are well-read, well-spoken, worldly, flexible, and adaptable – individuals who never stop learning and making meaningful connections in everything they do.

 

In keeping with the University’s mission, the College of Science, Health and the Liberal Arts commits itself to offering liberal arts majors that have a clear professional and career focus. Each academic program prepares students to begin dynamic careers right after graduation. These majors also provide a broad liberal arts education that sets a foundation for graduate study and lifelong learning. [CLICK HERE FOR MAJORS]
