IT TAKES MORE THAN A MAJOR

According to The Association of American Colleges and Universities (2013), three in four employers would recommend a liberal arts education as the best way to prepare for success in today’s global economy. Employers consistently prioritize learning that involves critical thinking, oral and written communication, and complex problem solving.

Employers strongly endorse educational practices that involve students in active learning, including collaborative problem-solving, internships, research, senior projects, and community engagements. They strongly endorse practices that require applying their learning to a real-world setting.

With many liberal arts colleges facing pressure to demonstrate that they adequately prepare students for the job market, we have risen above the competition to ensure superior career preparation & professional development for all students.
