Well-Rounded Education, Well-Received Graduates.
A small liberal arts college within a larger university. A big school's resources with a small school's focus on personal attention. You'll receive the most from both worlds here.
Our liberal arts programs are pathways to careers. Don't believe it? Today’s employers seek graduates with superior communication, problem-solving and knowledge-integration skills. Those are the same skill sets that define a liberal arts major.
