About

Find out more information about Liberal Arts

Liberal arts originate from antiquity, when they formed the basis of education for citizens of the Greek states. Today, the discipline includes a broad range of areas belonging to humanities, social sciences and natural sciences such as literature, languages, music, philosophy, history, mathematics, psychology, and more. These subjects can also be split into the categories of verbal arts, numerical arts and analytical arts. Liberal studies exclude any programmes related to the professional, vocational, or technical areas of study.

Liberal arts courses are especially popular in the U.S. where they are provided by liberal arts colleges as undergraduate programmes resulting in a B.Sc., a B.A. or an associate degree. Some programmes in liberal arts are similar to general studies by offering students the opportunity to choose a desired study tracks.

Liberal arts classes usually have a small number of students and rely more on student-teacher interaction. Students develop skills like critical thinking and the ability to communicate effectively verbally, as well as in writing. Students will achieve a sense of social responsibility, as well as strong intellectual and practical skills, demonstrating the ability to understand complex problems.

Graduates may find job opportunities in a wide range of areas including: art, education, politics, social work public service, military service, medicine, or law.
