What are the liberal arts? The short answer is that they encompass the disciplines loosely titled the arts, the humanities, and the social sciences. In the College of Liberal Arts at Wright State we offer more than 50 majors, minors, and certificate programs in everything from crime and justice studies to classics, from modern languages to motion pictures, from philosophy to political science, and many, many more.
But in addition to offering students the opportunity to become experts in their chosen subject, the liberal arts build essential skills that transcend a single discipline and prepare students for a lifetime of satisfaction and success. When you finish your liberal arts major, minor, or certificate you will be an accomplished researcher, a good writer, a creative problem solver, and able to understand our complex and diverse international world. You will understand the difference between good and misleading information, and will be able to use the data you discover to make sound, ethical decisions. These are exactly the skills employers say they seek.
So please, join us. Visit the web pages of our various departments, interdisciplinary programs and graduate programs. See recent accomplishments and news of our students and faculty in our current newsletter. Speak to faculty members who share your interest in a field of study, or sit in on a class. Talk to an advisor about your career options. Give us a call (937-775-2225) or email us at email@example.com. We look forward to sharing our enthusiasm for the liberal arts with you!
