Liberal Arts: A Well-Rounded Education

At the center of a liberal arts education is the education of the whole student. The focus is about gaining an education, not necessarily about preparing for a career. There is also a small, community-based feel that is very important to the understanding of this type of learning. This means that most liberal arts colleges cap their enrollment around 2,000 so that the student-to-teacher ratio is kept low.

The appeal of the liberal arts college for many is the wideness of the education they offer. The idea is to give the student a well-rounded learning experience that offers access to a number of different areas. Instead of the students being slotted into a specific course of study, the students are encouraged to take courses in a number of different areas.

Many of the same subjects are offered at liberal arts colleges as at larger universities. The difference is access to classes and subjects. Instead of taking a few courses from a certain area, the liberal arts college will see that classes are taken for a good mix of subjects.

Another appeal for the liberal arts college is the community feel for the students. Being a resident on campus is important to the education. A collaborative approach to learning is often encouraged. This goes beyond the students as most liberal arts colleges are part of a larger group of colleges.

As these smaller liberal arts colleges form a group, they broaden their offerings to the students. This can be a reason to consider the liberal arts college that you select. Finding a college that is part of a larger group of participating colleges, opens up the opportunity for access to other classes that may not be offered at your college of choice.

There are both private and public liberal arts colleges. Tuition is less at a public liberal arts college, but the ratio of student to teacher will most likely be higher. But this does not mean a compromise in education. Attending a school that is a good match for your needs is more important.
