The Liberal Arts

Textbooks on a shelfWMU’s College of Arts and Sciences offers more than 60 majors, generates nearly half of all WMU credit hours, and provides a high quality liberal arts core for all WMU students. Still, the nature and value of the liberal arts is not always clear, and has become the subject of an intense national discussion. As we map the shifting landscape with respect to attitudes about the liberal arts, we invite you to explore these links and to share ones that you'd like to see on the list.
