Liberal Arts and Sciences

Debra Ballard portrait

"Through the themes of creativity, diversity, identity, sustainability, and social responsibility, the Liberal Arts Curriculum cultivates an understanding of context and culture, a persistent self-reflective stance, a willingness to rethink traditional categories, and an opportunity to explore newly evolving realities, questioning the obvious and reaffirming that which is of enduring value. Through the power of articulate expression and skilled critical evaluation, you can enrich your understanding, appreciation, respect, awe, and pleasure at the incredibly diverse record of human creativity and the immense vista of imagination that preceded you and shaped the world you inherit."

Debra Ballard, Chair, Liberal Arts and Sciences

You will develop an understanding of context and culture, a persistent self-reflective stance, a willingness to rethink traditional categories, and an opportunity to explore newly evolving realities.

As you develop skills in articulate expression and critical evaluation, you will gain a deep respect and awe for human creativity and imagination.
