Graduates are expected to apply knowledge, skills, and ethical reasoning to contemporary situations learned in diverse disciplines. Students become leaders in the service of Truth springing from the Benedictine tradition. The major prepares students for advanced graduate study as well as a variety of careers. Nationally, Liberal Arts majors often are employed in management, sales, and human services.
