The liberal arts teaches you to see the world from varied perspectives, to respond to it in informed and ethical ways, and to lead people in virtually every field of work and human endeavor. It is an educational approach as old as the academy itself, and in today’s world—where the only thing constant is change— your training in the liberal arts tradition will make you sought after for your ability to think critically and creatively, to communicate artfully, and to motivate and inspire those around you.

From the latin, liberalis, this form of education is rooted in the idea of freedom—it is an education suited for free people. But with that freedom comes a responsibility to explore and to engage the opportunities in front of you. From special seminars, to honors education experiences your education can be as rich and inspiring as you choose to make it. You are also a citizen of an academic community; that means that you need to understand our standards of academic integrity, and be able to navigate our complex institution. Your academic adviser is a great place to start, and there are resources across the college and the university to help you along the way.
