School of Liberal Studies

 

The School of Liberal Studies includes the following disciplines:

Communication

English

History

Philosophy

Political Science

Spanish

An education in one of the Liberal Studies programs will give students a rich background in writing, reading, and critical thinking, skills that are vital in today’s job market no matter what profession a student may pursue.  A liberal studies background will prepare students for a career in such fields as law, education, research, public relations, journalism, and ministry.  In addition, students can pair a liberal studies curriculum with other majors for enhanced marketability.  For example, knowing Spanish would be a benefit to a nursing student just as studying the human condition through literature would make a future Social Work professional more compassionate.
