Liberal Arts
The first two years of college should be a time of growth and exploration for students both personally and academically. Starting out in Liberal Arts will allow you to find what you love and want to do with your education.  

Our Liberal Arts programs focus on areas such as communication, scientific inquiry, quantitative reasoning and ethical decision making. Classroom lectures focus on critical thinking, creative expression, and scientific reasoning. Students have the chance to select from a variety of courses to create a unique and personal academic pathway. The programs are taught on a more personal level than bigger colleges. They are taught in smaller groups by highly qualified instructors. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science in Liberal Arts are transfer programs that provide students an opportunity to complete the first two years of studying leading to a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts.
