Liberal Arts and Sciences



The liberal arts and sciences major is not just another term for “undecided.” On the contrary, declaring this major takes a lot of initiative and determination. If you are truly passionate about learning and want to spend your college years exploring new ideas rather than preparing for a specific career, you might consider majoring in liberal arts and sciences.

Most liberal arts courses include a great deal of reading, writing, and discussion, and classes tend to be small. You’ll gain the ability to reason critically, communicate effectively, and understand relationships across broad fields of knowledge.
