The liberal arts major offers a broad overview of the arts, sciences, and humanities. Within this major you will take upper-division courses in the chief disciplines: the arts, social sciences, history, literature, mathematics, science, and religious studies. Through this core you will gain a breadth of knowledge beyond the general education requirements while developing critical thinking, communication, and reasoning skills. You will also choose one area of concentration, an integral part of the liberal arts major, which provides disciplinary depth.
While the liberal arts major is not designed to give training for a specific job or set of jobs, our graduates are suited for advanced studies in virtually any area and are employable across a number of professions and industries because they develop important skills including creative and critical thought, problem solving, effective communication, and the ability to adapt to different work environments. Additionally, you will be able to look at different topics and understand relationships between them. You may find yourself working in education, communication, business, government, public service, management, or law.
