College of Liberal Arts
Welcome from the Dean


Well-balanced study of the arts, humanities, and social sciences combined with a practical, yet innovative way of looking at the world—that is what we promise
our students.

Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts. We offer a variety of undergraduate programs in the Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as a graduate program in Clinical Psychology.  Additionally, the College is the home for the Core, Scholars, and Writing programs, which make it possible for every student at the university to benefit from our offerings.

New and interesting things are always happening in the College of Liberal Arts. All of our programs offer exciting opportunities that complement and enrich the classroom experience. Students are engaged in undergraduate research, study abroad,  internships, and a variety of creative endeavors. We also strive to design innovative programs that meet current academic and professional demands. Our new programs in Graphic Design and Music Education expand the range of professional opportunities for art and music students, while our new Criminal Justice major responds to an increased demand for liberally educated professionals in the area of law enforcement.

None of our programs would happen without the support of our highly dedicated and competent faculty. Ninety percent of our faculty hold the highest degree in their fields. In addition to their teaching duties, faculty members continue to develop their professional skills through active participation in research, publishing, and conference presentations. This devotion to their profession is reflected by the success of our students, both while attending Benedictine University and after they graduate.

Please take some time to go through our website so that you can become acquainted with the unique characteristics of our programs. I also invite you to visit the College of Liberal Arts and explore the opportunities we offer. We would be delighted to meet with you and discuss your academic interests. If you are here on a day when classes are in session, we can arrange for you to observe a course in your area of interest. We look forward to meeting you!
