GAIN A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE

Experience the world as your classroom. Rather than picking things up from books and the Internet, navigating a new landscape will open your eyes to culture, history, a new language, or your heritage. The College of Liberal Arts provides countless Study Abroad experiences for you to explore the world, have an adventure, immerse yourself in a new culture, meet interesting people, gain independence, learn or perfect a foreign language, and become a global citizen.

PREPARE FOR YOUR FUTURE

A liberal arts degree empowers you to deal with complexity, diversity, and change. Our students find jobs and pursue careers in federal and state governmental agencies, health care organizations, social service agencies, corporations, universities, and public schools. They become successful leaders in these sites of work, as administrators, executives, heads of work teams, and community organizers. They assume a variety of leadership roles at work and in their communities. As Liberal Arts thinkers, they often rise to the top of administrative positions because of their skills across a variety of contexts.
