About LiberalArtsEDU.org

A resource for today's student of the liberal arts and sciences.

LiberalArtsEDU.org is a resource for students who value freedom, flexibility and a global perspective in education. We are here to help you understand your degree options in the liberal arts and sciences and find the perfect school to nurture your creativity and talent.

The idea that the world needs well-rounded critical-thinkers and problem-solvers has endured since the first schools of liberal arts in ancient Greece. And amazingly, much of the mathematic, scientific, philosophic, and rhetorical concepts discovered and developed in those schools remain unchallenged even today. That’s a strong argument for the idea that a liberal studies education is enduringly relevant and timeless.

You will find liberal arts graduates in every corner of industry, academia, and public service, and they're usually not hard to spot. They are the stand-out, self-motivated leaders with the kind of interdisciplinary perspective it takes to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. LiberalArtsEDU.org is here to make it easy for promising students like you to find the undergraduate or graduate degree program that will help you build that kind of character.

We're Here To Provide Information But Encourage You To Conduct Your Own Research

We believe everyone should be able to make educational decisions with confidence. It's important to note that our site does not feature every university or educational option available on the market. We encourage you to perform your own independent research before making any education decisions.

This website is owned and operated by Wiley. Many of the education programs included are from our Wiley University Services partners and schools that compensate us as a paid advertiser. This may influence which educational offerings we write about and where and how they appear on a page. Our content is free and originates from many different education content writers; our views and opinions are our own and for information purposes only.

Who We Are

We are a small, unaffiliated web publishing group, and that gives us the freedom to be an independent voice in education. Our funding comes from the few select schools that advertise here, and we limit our ad space to only the kind of private non-profit liberal arts colleges that we can feel good about recommending.

We are writers, teachers and artists by trade, with some pretty unique life experiences between us. The perspectives we offer are as diverse as the backgrounds we come from, and always informed by our love and connection to the arts and sciences.
