About the College of Liberal Arts

The College of Liberal Arts, through its course offerings and dedicated faculty, provides students with the critical and creative thinking, communication skills, and cultural literacy that are the hallmark of a highly educated person. Whenever possible we emphasize interdisciplinary approaches as a means to show the inherent connectedness between all forms of knowledge and to prepare students for the rapidly changing economic, political, social, and cultural environment of the 21st century.

With five distinct schools, the College of Liberal Arts serves students by offering a variety of classes in the traditional fields of the humanities, pre-professional programs, like Speech-Language Pathology or Architecture, and a host of degrees in the creative and performing arts. We also offer a variety of graduate-level programs at the master’s level as well as a Doctor of Audiology degree.

Our undergraduate programs prepare students for advanced training in professional schools, including law and medicine, as well as a wide range of career opportunities in business, media and publishing, non-profit organizations, government, social work and the arts. Our graduate programs offer advanced degrees in specialized fields in the liberal arts and for professional certification.
