Liberal Arts

A Message From The Program Coordinator

Welcome to the study of Liberal Arts at Mercer, where we aim to give you practice in valuable, in-demand skills necessary for a successful life in a rapidly changing world. Based on the Latin word liberalis, or “free,” Liberal Arts study once meant “things only a free and well-off person had the leisure to learn”; knowing these things was often a way of perpetuating the social power of those with authority to speak, write, and make decisions. Today, however, Liberal Arts study is a way for all people to claim the freedom to think, know, respond creatively, and speak in the cause of personal and social justice. Liberal Arts training creates people who are well-rounded, interdisciplinary, resilient, global, articulate, ethical, and collaborative thinkers who can make life better not just for themselves, but for everyone.
