The Value of the Liberal Arts
Get ready to embark on an educational journey that will prepare you for long-term career success. In the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), our courses are geared toward graduating students in a timely fashion with focus on real-world knowledge and application of skills such as:
- Critical Thinking
