Welcome to Benedictine University's College of Liberal Arts. We offer a variety of undergraduate programs in the humanities and social sciences, as well as graduate programs in Clinical Psychology and Linguistics. Additionally, the College is the home to the 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 programs in Graphic Arts and 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 look through our website so you can learn more about 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 sit in on a course in your area of interest. We look forward to meeting you!
