Explore your gifts. Find new passions. Expand your world. Shape your degree to fit your own interests and career goals.

The liberal arts major at EMU gives you the maximum amount of flexibility to reflect your creativity, your ambitions and how you understand the connectedness of various disciplines.

Is a liberal arts degree right for you? 

  • Do you know where you want to go but want to get there in your own way?
  • Have you had – or do you want to have – summer jobs or internships that establish experience on your resume?
  • Is your own unique combination of interests and abilities more important to you than a specific major might be?
  • Are you more concerned with ideas, concepts and thought processes than with products, services and day-to-day operations?
  • Have you chosen to delay a career decision, opting to experience education before focusing on a vocation?

Liberal arts is also a popular choice for those who will enter the elementary education sequence because of the opportunity to learn about a wide range of subjects.
