Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts University

The liberal arts degree challenges you to develop the skills necessary to be successful in any number of professions that require curiosity, agility, critical thinking, strong communication skills, cultural literacy, and a holistic worldview, among many other skills.

This degree is extremely flexible, giving you the opportunity to choose courses that most interest you within five broad categories: cultural literacy, biblical discernment, critical thinking, holistic worldview, and professional preparedness. You’ll take courses in communication, history, business, Bible, psychology, philosophy, and more.

“The liberal arts major anticipates the future of higher ed,” says Dr. Ryan Stark, Associate Professor of Humanities. “More stress on capacities, critical thinking, writing, and speaking, etc. Less stress on mastering large bodies of content. The beauty of the liberal arts major is maximum flexibility.

Career Options

Employers know that people who have these crucial general skills make well-rounded, competent, valuable employees. With people often changing jobs 10-15 times in their lives, being a strong writer, speaker, and thinker will help you be prepared for wherever your career path leads.

  • Introduction to Liberal Studies
  • Fine Arts Elective
