Liberal Arts Core Requirements

Liberal Arts Core Requirements

The liberal arts serve as the foundation for all higher education. The main objective of a liberal arts education is to enable students to gain an understanding of how people have attempted throughout history to render the breadth of human experience intelligible. The liberal arts/general education department at SFUAD provides extensive curricula and experiential opportunities relevant to the needs of aspiring artists. Courses are designed to explore the various ways in which the human mind has engaged, and continues to engage, its physical and social environment through art, literature, philosophical and historical inquiry, scientific and mathematical reasoning, and social scientific analysis.
