Is a liberal arts major or degree worth the price? A recent study says yes.
Educational consultant Mark Montgomery describes the mission of a liberal arts education: to prepare the student not for a job, but for the world at large.
Jake Bonnell, admission counselor at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, writes about his great experience getting a Liberal Arts education at Ohio Wesleyan University.
Mark lends his expertise to advice on taking double majors at liberal arts colleges: it’s best not to narrow your focus to the details of two separate majors, but to take one major and get the whole picture.
Mark recently visited Lawrence University (in the dead of winter) and found it to be a very warm and inviting place–providing an outstanding education in the liberal arts and music.
Looking for a college that helps prepare its students for the “Real World”? Take a look at Colgate University.
As you visit colleges take the time to observe where students gather together, where they are studying, hanging out, or meeting professors. It can give you a great sense of how students interact with one another on campus. The Adirondack style chairs on the Swarthmore campus are a perfect place to do just that.
