Liberal Arts

Associate of Arts degree

The hallmark of a liberal arts education is the preparation it gives the student for lifelong learning and personal enhancement. While technical skills may become obsolete over time, skills gained through liberal arts coursework will not. Almost every profession requires the student to communicate, write, solve social problems, adapt to new situations, analyze information, and interact with a variety of people. These are skills assembled through liberal arts and are of great value to any employer.
