Want to succeed in today’s world? Start with a liberal arts and sciences education.

Is a liberal arts and sciences education relevant today? English professor Mark Bruhn shares three of the many reasons the answer is a resounding yes.

Versatility and problem solving
A liberal arts and sciences education empowers you to take a variety of approaches – analytical, comparative, creative, digital, experimental, historical, mathematical, performative – to the challenges you confront and the audiences you address.

Big-picture thinking
A liberal arts and sciences education teaches you to think about a single issue from multiple perspectives, rather than thinking about multiple issues from a single perspective.

Leadership in a global world
A liberal arts and sciences education cultivates respect (meaning “re-seeing”) of differences and responsibility (meaning “responsiveness”) to others, enhancing your capacities for cross-cultural communication and consensus building.
