You will know how to interpret complex narratives – like those presented in the news – with the understanding things may not always be as they seem. You’ll also foster the persuasive communication skills you need to motivate people to action.
A Liberal Arts degree turns your preconceived notions of the world on their heads. Our professors engage you in local and global communities to help you develop the perspective, competency and conviction to solve the difficult challenges our world is facing.
Today’s companies look very different from the ones your parents worked in, and tomorrow’s will look even more unfamiliar as businesses adapt to new technological trends and globalization. To survive, they need employees that can see things from numerous points of view, adapt to unforeseen circumstances and communicate effectively to lead different personalities.

• The ability to research to validate a point of view
• A well-informed worldview
• Empathy and respect for diverse opinions
• Time management skills and the ability to produce under pressure
• Comfort with public speaking and the confidence to defend your perspective in a constructive manner
• Critical analysis to understand complex issues and creative problem solving to generate solutions
