When it comes to new ideas, communication, analytical thinking, and cross-cultural interaction, nothing beats Liberal Arts.
In a time of rapid change, both the private and public sectors need people who can think and adapt. As new problems arise, in everything from the environment to international crises, we need people who can do everything from understanding how to get people to conserve energy to speak a foreign language. The world needs creative problem-solvers, and there are plenty of careers waiting for those who want those kinds of challenges. A Liberal Arts/General Studies degree major prepares you for all types of careers.
