- The Philosophy of Liberal Arts
- Undergraduate education in the United States is based largely on the concept of "liberal arts," with the goal of providing a well-rounded academic education. The teaching methodologies in turn are directed at developing students' verbal, written, and reasoning skills.
Students at a liberal arts college, or at a university with a strong liberal arts program, begin their degree study by taking classes in a wide variety of courses in the arts, humanities, languages, and the social and physical sciences. They then choose a subject in which to specialize (called a major) and take about 25 to 50 percent of their classes in the major area.
Even those who do not follow a liberal arts program and instead plan to major in a specialized subject like engineering are usually required to take about 25 percent of their classes in humanities and social sciences to complement their studies. Similarly, a student who wants to complete a major in history is required to take some classes in mathematics and, possibly, the sciences.
