How does a liberal arts degree fortify your future?
A liberal arts degree doesn't train you for a narrow specialty. Rather, the purpose of a liberal arts education is lifelong-learning, exploration and discovery.
Classes in liberal arts disciplines often involve writing, crafting an argument, supporting a point of view with research and defending or discussing your idea with others. These skills don't apply to just one field--they apply to every field. Evidence shows this is exactly what employers are looking for.
In addition to increasing your employability, liberal arts education provides you a foundation for flexibility and career mobility.
Young adults like you are increasingly interested in finding a career path that matches their values and meets their life goals. Often, navigating that path means changing jobs and even careers.
