WTST Radio Control RoomFrom English, art, theater, and music to history, political science, criminal justice, and mass communications, Liberal Arts disciplines put the intellectual growth of the student at the center of the university experience.

All of the majors in the College of Liberal Arts are guided by common core values:

Integrative Learning

Liberal Arts programs recognize education as an inherently connected, cumulative, and student-centered experience in which learning occurs across courses and across disciplines.


Liberal Arts programs value and nurture originality, imagination, discovery, the active creation and appreciation of beauty, and the unique voice of each student.  Rather than providing "training", they seek to inspire students and draw inspiration from them.


Liberal Arts programs recognize the development of integrity, ethical thinking, and social and environmental awareness as essential goals of a college education.

Critical Thinking and Reasoned Judgment

Liberal Arts programs recognize discourse and the construction of knowledge as human activities requiring the questioning of assumptions, logical reasoning, analysis and synthesis, the appreciation of multiple perspectives, self-awareness, empathetic capacity, and civility.

Professional Competency

Liberal Arts programs value, model, and cultivate excellence in written and oral communication, task organization, collaboration, quantitative thinking, and literacy in information technology, equipping students with transferrable professional skills.

Student Service and Support

Liberal Arts programs recognize the quality of the individual student's educational experience as the primary measure of their effectiveness and are committed to the highest standards of service for both traditional and non-traditional students in curriculum design, course offering, instruction, learning assessment, co-curricular activities, and academic and career advisement.
