Areas of Study

The tradition of “liberal arts” is one that emphasizes general knowledge and the development of general intellectual capacities (such as reason and judgment) along with a stronger sense of values, ethics, and civic engagement. A liberal arts education is characterized by challenging encounters with important issues that provide a broad exposure to multiple disciplines and learning strategies in addition to in-depth study in one or two academic areas.
