The College of Liberal Arts is devoted to instilling a love of learning, questioning and critiquing all forms of knowledge in their content, structure and application.
We want to give students at Woodbury University every possible advantage as they transform their energy and ambition into learning and professions capable of meeting the challenges of the contemporary world. The intellectual, social and collaborative skills they learn in the liberal arts are significant to their future success as citizens, professionals and members of their community.
Courses, majors and programs in the College of Liberal Arts expose students to the rapidly changing body of knowledge, theories, ideas and principles that have shaped society, technology, culture and the environment. Our emphasis is on active, experiential learning techniques designed to enhance the student’s capacity for independent and rigorous thinking as well as creative and contextual analysis leading to action.
The college houses four undergraduate majors, one graduate degree, three minors and two science and mathematics programs that educate all undergraduate students who attend the university.
Our faculty are accomplished caring academics and professionals dedicated to supporting the success of students throughout their academic journey. They bring their professional expertise to students and work closely with them to teach the skills and theory required to enter professional practice or pursue advanced study. Through this individual attention, we foster close mentoring relationships between faculty and students in a supportive and encouraging environment.
