About

At Southern Virginia University, historically, the Liberal Arts were considered the branches of study fit for free men (liber is Latin for “free”). They were contrasted with skills needed for more mechanical trades and professions.

Overview

Key Features

Today, as Liberal Arts majors at Southern Virginia University, students read, study and investigate the main issues in a range of liberal arts disciplines (such as history, literature, art, philosophy and the sciences) and thereby become well practiced in critical thinking and reasoning and in aesthetic judgment. They also gain an appreciation for the historical and cultural contexts that frame our contemporary world and its problems—a valuable perspective for all leader-servants in our day.

One of the great advantages of a liberal arts major is its versatility. Students may mold their programs of study to include specific areas of interest within the context of the major requirements (a current major has successfully combined minors in government, chemistry and math). When suitably completed or supplemented with minor areas of emphasis, the liberal arts major is excellent preparation for a career or graduate program in law, business, medicine, education, public service, the arts and other fields.
