Liberal Arts Core

The faculty of Cedarville believe in the value of the liberal arts core.  We want our graduates to be educated individuals, not just trained employees.  We recognize that both education and training are vital,  and we are convinced that in this day and age college graduates need to know how to learn as much as they need to know how to do a task.  The career experts suggest that graduates of colleges today will change careers 4-5 times in their lifetimes.  Those shifts require a certain set of skills that the liberal arts courses help to develop in our students.
