THE LIBERAL ARTS In a world where today’s knowledge so easily becomes yesterday’s news, a liberal arts education thrives. What kind of education is this? Invaluable. What will it teach. Skills and tools for a lifetime of learning and success. In studying the liberal arts, students gain the knowledge of how to ask the right questions about any topic or issue. They become well versed in the methods and sources used in research across all disciplines. They develop the ability to think critically, forming their own ideas and opinions about topics that were once foreign to them. They learn a greater aptitude for speaking and writing effectively. Liberal arts students are among the most marketable college graduate in training. Hiring managers at major corporations repeatedly praise the liberal arts for the broad-based foundation of knowledge and the wide range of experiences it offers.
