What is Artes Liberales?

Artes Liberales embraces the breadth of knowledge and the habits of mind that, since ancient times, have been considered essential for a free citizen to master.

Liberal arts colleges and universities are founded on the premise that liberal education is about the development of an attitude of mind, not merely the mastery of a body of knowledge. The goal of liberal arts education is the development of an individual’s capacity to think clearly, critically, and creatively; to judge and act wisely and ethically; and to communicate clearly and effectively.
