Learn how to connect different perspectives
Steve Jobs said, “It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields the result that makes our hearts sing.” Liberal Studies is where you learn interdisciplinary ways of thinking and doing to develop knowledge of a variety of disciplines that give you a platform for success in many fields. Develop intellectual capacities to connect different types of knowledge along with other skills employers seek through writing, presenting and discussing points of view.
Understand the whole picture
Explore important issues by connecting concepts and works from various disciplines such as history, literature, art, and science to understand problems, issues and ideas in a dynamic way. Our program has three organizing themes focused on contemporary issues: sustainability, social responsibility/social justice, and wellness.
Student develop this view from classroom inquiry-based, active learning combined with CPP’s Learn Through Discovery approach (field trips, co-curricular events, service to the community). Work on projects that create new ideas and perspectives about yourself, others and the world. Gain a big picture view and “Liberal Studies mindset,” assets in both work and life, where you’ll have an edge over narrow specialists because you will understand the value and application of different knowledges to solve problems or create solutions.
