Not all heroes wear capes—some only have a liberal arts degree.
Where Transformational Leaders Are Made
We believe a liberal arts education empowers our students to change the world. And with the global challenges threatening humanity today, we need minds capable of not only solving problems, but thinking critically about which problems to solve, and designing innovative solutions that address why we should.
With programs in humanities, math and computer science, as well as the natural sciences, we encourage our students to analyze, question, challenge, and discover. We believe that to be active participants in the world around us, we must welcome perspectives, voices, and beliefs different from our own.
One of the values of a liberal arts education is that it covers a wide range of topics and experiences designed to make you look at the world a little differently. You won’t just read, you’ll interpret and analyze. You’ll write to explain, persuade, and understand. You’ll think critically, thematically, and systematically about how to use (or not use information) to make the world a better place.
The COVID-19 epidemic has created a lot of uncertainty for many of us. Throughout this entire experience, our goal has been to support our students in safely returning to campus. Together, even amid COVID-19, we commit to creating an environment for you to grow, thrive, and earn your degree.
We continue to respond to changing guidelines, and plan based on recommendations from the federal government, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as other governing organizations. We anticipate a majority of our Fall 2021 course offerings will be blended where some courses will be offered face-to-face on campus, with a majority as online and remote.
