Humanities and Liberal Arts

"But what does it mean?" "Why?" You may have heard these questions in the context of why study humanities or liberal arts. But in fact, these questions are at the heart of humanities and liberal arts programs. The academic areas of social sciences, natural sciences, fine arts, literature, and the humanities are often combined under the broad collective term "liberal arts," which for centuries has been considered the core of a solid education. Encompassing history, literature, philosophy, ethics, linguistics, foreign languages and cultures, archaeology, comparative religion, philosophy of law, art history and criticism, anthropology, sociology, psychology, political science and economics, the liberal arts also include natural and physical sciences. This combination is designed specifically to provide a well-rounded education in general knowledge and intellectual skills as opposed to professional or vocational skills. Humanities and liberal arts programs may tackle the most essential human questions, problems and possibilities through rigorous study, reflection and interpretation, with an eye for value, purpose and meaning.

So whether you're looking for a degree or diploma, there are lots of options at 4-year universities and colleges, 2-year colleges, and Catholic or Christian colleges to answer your interest in humanities and liberal arts.
