The Liberal Arts Are Essential
The liberal arts have always been at the core of a strong university education, emphasizing learning across a broad range of subjects. A liberal arts education is applicable to almost any career path.
Liberal arts students can choose from more than 40 majors in addition to pursuing a minor or certificate in a variety of fields. Many liberal arts majors choose to enrich their educational experiences through internships, undergraduate research, study abroad, and leadership opportunities.
Across 34 programs and areas of study, graduate students pursuing Ph.D. and M.A. degrees enjoy high-quality instruction, cutting-edge research training, and professional socialization. Top-ranked graduate programs (according to U.S. News & World Report) include Latin American History, Sociology of Populations, Psychology, Sex and Gender, and African American History.
