Welcome to the School of Liberal Arts!
The School of Liberal Arts offers interdisciplinary studies which include specific content from the arts, humanities, and social sciences. The interdisciplinary studies are designed to strengthen the students’ knowledge and preparation for competitive career opportunities. Also, students’ preparations for success in graduate and professional programs are enhanced through the completion of degree requirements from interdisciplinary studies in the School of Liberal Arts.
In the School of Liberal Arts, we have outstanding faculty members who work closely with our students. Our specific degree programs are designed to contain content from across disciplines which may include Criminal Justice, English, History, International Studies, Mass Communications, Music, Political Science, Religion, Philosophy and the Humanities, Sociology, and Speech Communications and Theatre Arts. Also, World Languages and Cultures are offered in the School of Liberal Arts along with excellent study abroad programs.
The School of Liberal Arts is the core of the academic programs at the university. We provide a strong general education foundation that all entry level students must complete before proceeding in your chosen major areas of study.
Students who choose to major in the liberal arts tend to have varied interests and are dynamic and inquisitive people. You will find that in the School of Liberal Arts you are not restricted to any one field of study. Students graduate from our liberal arts programs with a diverse skill set that many major employers recognize as important and seek in their employees, such as skills in intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, research, and leadership. Students possessing the same diverse skill set are well prepared to succeed in rigorous graduate programs and professional schools.
I invite you to contact us for more information about the interdisciplinary programs of study in the School of Liberal Arts. I look forward to meeting you.
My best wishes to you at this exciting time in your life!
