The meaning of “liberal” in the term “liberal arts” does not refer to a political philosophy, but rather the idea of freedom. The study of the liberal arts is intended to free the mind from the constraints of stereotype, prejudice, ignorance and fear.
The School of Arts and Sciences at RSU has a long and proud tradition of offering its students a solid foundation in Arts, Communications, Humanities and Social Sciences
Today, employers are increasingly seeking students with strong liberal arts backgrounds for a variety of occupations. Those who plan to enter Graduate School will find no better preparation than a liberal arts degree. The study of the liberal arts will provide you with a solid footing in the arts and social sciences and second-to-none preparation for your academic specialty.
Our students are prepared for a lifetime of working and learning and strengthen everything you do – from tough career decisions to life challenges.
