Why Study at a Liberal Arts and Sciences School?
Liberal arts and sciences does not refer to a political leaning or a program where students only study art or science. A liberal arts and sciences education refers to an educational program where students have a broad foundation of study in addition to targeted exploration of specific fields. Liberal arts and sciences institutions teach their students to think critically and develop arguments through both writing and speech, which are important skills for international students to master.
Marlboro College is similar to other liberal arts and sciences colleges in that we encourage broad study across our curriculum. We differ, however, from most other colleges in that we do not require students to take any specific course to fulfill a requirement. We let students’ passions govern which classes they take and what they choose to study. It’s really the best of both worlds.
