Specific Goals of the College of Liberal Arts

Students in the College of Liberal Arts become acquainted with many areas of intellectual interest and acquire a thorough knowledge of a specific field through the courses in their major field. This liberal arts education prepares students for business and professional careers as well as providing the basis for a richer and better life. To bring about these ends, The College of Liberal Arts serves both its own majors and the University community in the following ways:

  • Offering courses in such areas as English, history, foreign languages, the arts, and social sciences which are required in many of the curricula at Louisiana Tech University;
  • Providing traditional humanities and arts courses for students desiring minor fields of study, for non-traditional students who may or may not seek a degree, and for any other student interested in learning about various areas of liberal arts;
  • Providing pre-professional training for those students who intend to study law and speech-language pathology or audiology;
  • Assisting in the preparation of prospective teachers who desire to major in such subjects as art, English, foreign languages, music, social science, and speech;
  • Providing specialized training for vocations in such fields as architecture, aviation, graphic design, interior design, journalism, music, and theatre; and
  • Providing graduate training leading toward Master of Arts, Master of Fine Arts, and doctoral degrees.
