I Believe That Receiving a Liberal Arts Degree...


I believe very strongly that receiving a liberal arts degree remains one of the best ways to prepare for life in general, as well as for a career. In an era when many students are preoccupied with developing "practical" or "vocational" skills, I am more convinced than ever that a liberal arts education is an invaluable resource for negotiating life's complicated paths. The fact that Columbia College continues to offer its students an exceptional liberal arts curriculum is very reassuring to me.
