Why Liberal Arts? The School of Arts & Sciences offers a liberal arts education in the Catholic tradition. The major is directed to the perfection of the mind through the acquisition of knowledge and intellectual virtue. The faculty seeks to assist students in coming to a mature knowledge of themselves and of their human potential, nurturing their personal capacity for Truth and Goodness. Toward that end, the School of Arts & Sciences provides integrated curricula, which enable students to understand that Truth is one, and that they have the ability to discover it in its many dimensions.
