Description: 

Instead of focusing on one field of study, Liberal Arts majors at St. Gregory’s take a variety of Humanities courses. These classes may include English, Philosophy, History, Theology, Theatre, Art, Dance, Music and Foreign Languages.

Because Liberal Arts majors have so much freedom when choosing courses, they are able to focus on what interests them. If they enjoy Philosophy courses, they can take them. If they would prefer to take something else, they can do so. This makes each student’s degree plan extremely individualized—you choose what is right for you.

Students majoring in Liberal Arts gain a sense of the big picture. Rather than becoming narrowly specialized, they develop different facets of themselves. Thus, they are knowledgeable in more than one area and become well-balanced, informed citizens.
