What do students think about the Graduate Program
in Liberal Arts?

In recent interviews, graduate students throughout Liberal Arts said:

  • The graduate program offers excellent academic and career preparation by a talented and supportive faculty. 
  • The program provides significant opportunities to conduct research with faculty, experience outstanding internship and study abroad programs, and benefit from valuable research and teaching assistantships. 
  • The program offers the academic resources of a large university, in a small-campus atmosphere.
  • The flexible class schedule makes attendance convenient to both full-time graduate students and students who work while pursuing
    a degree.
