liberal arts (noun) 1. the academic course of instruction at a college intended to provide general knowledge and comprising the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, as opposed to professional or technical subjects. -www.dictionary.com

The liberal arts are the subjects or skills that were once considered essential for a free person and a citizen to know in order to participate in civic life. The importance of being able to participate in civic life included the liberties of public debate, defending oneself in court, serving on juries, and military service. Slaves and resident non locals were, by definition, excluded from the duties and responsibilities of citizenship, and destined to perform simple tasks of labor.

The goal of the liberal arts studies is to produce a virtuous, knowledgeable and articulate person. The extended curriculum, comprised of the ancient studies, Trivium and Quadrivium, constitute the seven liberal arts subjects of a university curriculum. The core courses (Trivium) are comprised of grammar, logic and rhetoric, the additional courses of study (Quadrivum)came to include arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy. The educational curriculum of humanism spread throughout higher educational institutions and now is the foundation for what Universities and Colleges provide as General Education requirements.

A Liberal Arts degree can be interpreted as a general course of study and refers to matters not relating to the professional, vocational, or technical curricula. Liberal arts career opportunities are some of the most necessary and respected careers and include professions which require education at the university level in degree concentrations such as:

  • Art degree: for photography, commercial art, graphic and visual design.
  • English degree: for teaching, journalism, web writing, advertising, publishing or law.
  • Foreign language degree: for students who are considering government jobs, teaching, journalism, translator, professor or tourism and travel industries.
  • Political Science degree: careers in law, public policy, politics, journalism, business, non-profit and administrative work.
  • Biology degree: is foundational in careers for healthcare, laboratory assistant, research assistant, environmental jobs, technician, or public policy.
  • Psychology degree: careers are in education, college professor, psychologist, marketing and advertising.
