Overall Rating

The term liberal arts and sciences comes up a lot during a college search. Typically, this educational tradition is based upon a broad, interdisciplinary curriculum, small, discussion-centered classes with approachable professors, and opportunities to learn inside and outside of the classroom. Even some of the largest universities’ undergraduate programs draw upon these customs.
