College of Liberal Arts

The College of Liberal Arts aims to stimulate and develop students’ thought processes and intellectual capabilities, and increase their abilities to consider, compare and communicate within a broad range of disciplines, traditions and world-views. Liberal arts students are inquisitive and insightful, and share a rich cultural understanding of the world in which they live. The majors and various elective courses available in the College promote three elements essential for success in the job market of the 21st Century: creativity, critical thinking and communication. In a world where people change careers an average of five times or more, the adaptability gained through a liberal arts education is invaluable.
