What is a Degree in Liberal Arts?

The Liberal Arts degree program fosters strong thinking skills towards a dually purposed goal: to prepare students to be active citizens in a strong democracy and to develop the intellectual skills that employers desire. Students will take up study in a diversity of courses that provide a foundational set of knowledge that forms a strong basis for further academic study.

Students intending to transfer to a Bachelor’s program in a specific area such as: English, history, political science, or sociology should regularly meet with an advisor to ensure transferability of all coursework.
