Written by veteran faculty from several liberal arts colleges and universities around the country, A Student’s Guide to the Liberal Arts is an accessible and straightforward introduction to the humanities for students coming into contact with college level study for the first time. The book examines the nature of the liberal arts (chapter one), the goals of a liberal education (chapter fifteen), and, in an introductory fashion, 13 specific disciplines--communication, language, literature, music, art history, history, psychology, sociology, political science, philosophy, religion, mathematics, and science.
A Student’s Guide to the Liberal Arts is essential reading for students, faculty, administrators, parents of students, high school guidance counselors, and other who seek to understand the value of undergraduate studies in the humanities.
