Today's workplace is demanding. Employers are assigning a higher level of responsibility to employees and asking them to use more extensive skills than in the past.
With a liberal arts education from UND, you graduate with the technological literacy required and the communication and critical thinking skills to thrive. You'll be prepared to change jobs or even careers if needed.
The UND College of Arts & Sciences educates the whole person. While the push to encourage STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields is important, it is insufficient. Narrow specialization is more than limited to graduates, it can ultimately delay or derail their careers in an economy that demands strategic thinkers, and innovative decision-makers.
Building on this foundation through Essential Studies, students in the College of Arts & Sciences undertake rigorous coursework in one of 18 departments, or 11 special programs. Each department or program is different, creating a unique blend of liberal and applied learning in each respective field. Through the context of each department or program, liberal arts students develop knowledge and skills that cut across disciplines.
