The Benefit of a Liberal Arts Degree

Thursday, February 18, 2021

GradsToo often the liberal arts get a bad rap! 

But, a report published several years ago in Inside Higher Ed, Liberal Arts Grads Win Long-Term, explores the personal benefits and career advantages that can be found in pursuing a liberal arts degree. And it's still as true today!

According to the author, employers consistently say they want to hire people who have a broad knowledge base and can work together to solve problems, debate, communicate, and think critically ... all skills that liberal arts programs aggressively, and perhaps uniquely, strive to teach.

Liberal arts majors may start off slower than others when it comes to the postgraduate career path, but they close much of the salary and unemployment gap over time, the article continued.

This description of the benefits of a liberal arts education is exactly how Cedarville University seeks to equip every one of its graduates ... with one important "value add!"

Not only do our students learn how to think well, they learn how to live well, prepared to serve Christ with excellence, wherever He leads them. Every academic program at Cedarville – including our many fully accredited professional degrees – is built on the foundation of a liberal arts core and our 15-credit Bible minor.

These courses together challenge, stretch, and strengthen students, laying the foundation for personal and professional success. As our mission promises, Cedarville graduates are equipped for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth.
