St. John's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

“It’s the flexibility and the translational skills that students get in the liberal arts—the heavy emphasis on critical thinking, writing, and speaking. It prepares students not only for careers today, but for careers that don’t even exist today…Nowadays, it’s predicted that students will change careers five or six times in their lifetimes. If you have a liberal arts education, you can easily move from one discipline to another because you learn how to learn.”
- Jeffrey Fagen, Ph.D., Dean, St. John’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
