Whether you aspire to be a teacher, lawyer, musician, psychologist, or painter, a well-rounded liberal arts education will give you a solid foundation in creative and critical thinking for life. Choose from 21 departments and disciplines to develop a deep and holistic understanding of our world today—from anthropology, political science, and criminology to fine arts, English, and philosophy.
Our arts students explore contemporary and interconnected social and cultural issues through the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts in experiential programs that include service and community-engaged learning, research projects, practicums, field schools, and co-op placements.
