Bachelor of Arts or Science Degrees
The hallmark of a Liberal Arts degree is its adaptability to many careers. Because Liberal Arts graduates have “learned how to learn” and to be flexible, they adapt to many different career environments. These graduates often achieve remarkable success in unexpected career areas and are well prepared for more traditional paths such as graduate school.
The Liberal Arts program encourages students to explore the world—reading, listening, thinking, and communicating effectively through writing, speech, and the arts. Students will choose from the traditional liberal arts disciplines, where emphasis is placed on careful analysis, articulate expression, and critical thinking—a strong foundation for continued study or professional endeavors.

1. Think critically and reflectively across a variety of academic disciplines;
