Career Options

Like other majors in the Liberal Arts a degree in Liberal Studies provides a solid foundation in critical thinking and writing proficiency as well as instilling the ability to pursue effectively intellectual inquiry at an advanced level. Armed with such skills holders of liberal arts degrees are well-equipped to adapt and adjust to the vicissitudes of constantly changing economic conditions. Liberal Studies can serve as a pre-law curriculum, combining courses in philosophy, political science and Latin. Courses in English, communications and history can prepare students for careers in journalism or other media. Combining Fine Arts courses with other disciplines can open up opportunities in marketing or management for museums and art galleries. A recent graduate interested in a career in diplomacy and business in Africa put together a program combining courses from African-African American Studies, political science and French. Because the range of disciplines available is so broad, the possible career options are almost limitless.
