  • The Value of a Liberal Arts Education

    +
  • At Huron, your courses are going to challenge you academically and help develop your intellect. But, your education will also prioritize community engagement and civic responsibility. So, you won’t just graduate with a solid knowledge base, you will also have a more active cultural and social conscience. 

    You will know how to interpret complex narratives – like those presented in the news – with the understanding things may not always be as they seem. You’ll also foster the persuasive communication skills you need to motivate people to action.

    A Liberal Arts degree turns your preconceived notions of the world on their heads. Our professors engage you in local and global communities to help you develop the perspective, competency and conviction to solve the difficult challenges our world is facing. 

    Today’s companies look very different from the ones your parents worked in, and tomorrow’s will look even more unfamiliar as businesses adapt to new technological trends and globalization. To survive, they need employees that can see things from numerous points of view, adapt to unforeseen circumstances and communicate effectively to lead different personalities.

    These are exactly the skills a Liberal Arts education empowers you with:

    • The ability to research to validate a point of view
    • A well-informed worldview
    • Empathy and respect for diverse opinions
    • Time management skills and the ability to produce under pressure
    • Comfort with public speaking and the confidence to defend your perspective in a constructive manner
    • Critical analysis to understand complex issues and creative problem solving to generate solutions

    Don’t settle for learning the skills for one career. Become a formidable force in the modern job market with transferable abilities that will set you a part and position you for leadership roles in the sector of your choice.

  • Experiential learning opportunities

    +
  • Authentic learning happens beyond the classroom, so Huron’s Co-Curricular Learning Office helps students connect their course material to the real world through community engagement. Community-Based Learning (CBL) creates experiences for students to recognize the applicability of their Liberal Arts degree to their personal and professional success. CBL supports Huron's mission of "combining rigorous learning with the exploration of new territory" by connecting the classroom to the community and the community to the classroom.

    Students will have an opportunity to participate in independent study with forms of active learning. In order to provide transformational community-based learning, we ensure that CBL components are integrated into the course in ways that actually make sense. We identify partnerships that are meaningful and relevant to course material and that are equally beneficial to the student and the community partner.  

    Huron provides students with unique opportunities to overcome the real and imagined boundaries that conventionally divide the academy from the community. They will meet influential community members, build upon their resumes and develop an authentic understanding of how their degree will help them contribute significant value to their workplace and society as a whole.
