Liberal arts places special emphasis on multidisciplinary studies. This broad approach is beneficial for the student who wishes freedom to pursue intellectual curiosity and to become broadly knowledgeable.

This course of study appeals to students who may wish a good foundation of liberal studies to carry forward to an advanced or professional program or to students who have not yet identified for themselves a major course of study.
