  • What Can I Do With a Major in Liberal Arts?

    The Program fosters the idea that education is environmental rather than compartmental, general before it can be specific. The faculty views the program to be an excellent preparation for further study in professional and graduate schools and for careers in social services, the legal field, professional health and business. The rationale for this: a person who learns how to discover, evaluate and develop a problem, how to secure the information required by these processes and why he or she does so at all is well prepared to live in a humane and valuable way. Finally, the program is just as concerned that the plumber, the carpenter or factory worker be poet, mathematician or philosopher and be able to create with the help of these disciplines a more meaningful life. For the primary question is always: What is man? What does it mean to be?
