Online Liberal Studies Degrees

What will I learn in a Liberal Arts degree or training program?

The whole idea of a Liberal Arts degree or training program is that you should be educated first and then trained second. Instead of you deciding while you are still in high school that you are going to be trained specifically in one specialty, you take a series of classes in different subjects which then add up to a degree or a whole training program. Some natural sciences, some social science, some math, some art and literature: a general, well rounded education made up of the best that our civilization has found out about the world and the people in it. It is after you have completed this first degree that you then go on to do the specific training for your career, knowing that you have a solid grounding in many subjects from your Liberal Arts training program.

What does a Liberal Arts degree or training program qualify me to do?

After a Liberal Arts degree or training program the most common further training is to go to business, law, medicine or graduate school: all require you to have a first degree but you do not need to have a specialist subject in that first degree. The way in which the Liberal Arts train your mind to think is what is valued. All of those professions have high incomes: around an average of $100,000 for lawyers and $150,000 as a family practice doctor.
