The Added Value of Liberal Arts Degrees

Specialized training is a necessity for particular professions, but what if you change careers? 

Statistics show that most people change careers more than once in their lifetimes. Liberal Arts degrees can provide flexibility for today’s changing workplace by providing solid foundations for a wide range of professions.  Liberal Arts majors strengthen ‘transferable skills’ by teaching reasoning, critical thinking, problem-solving, research techniques, and sharpening communication skills in writing and speaking.  With these tools in your toolkit, the flexible Liberal Arts candidate can be trained in specifics on the job.
