Why Study Liberal Arts [Online]?

The search for truth and the ability to think across the disciplines is a major reason to pursue a degree in the liberal arts—mathematics and science, history and literature, philosophy, fine arts, and social sciences—because they provide us with ways to discover truth in the world. Fitted together with theological reflection on God’s Word, these disciplines enable us to formulate a robust understanding of God, the world, and ourselves. The breadth of study provides knowledge and background which are often left underdeveloped in other programs, helping the liberal arts graduate thrive in a wide variety of fields.
