Our definition of a liberal arts education is that it is not only a study of academic disciplines but also a mode of instruction that emphasizes applying knowledge and skills learned in one context to new contexts, and on employing interpersonal skills like teamwork, courage, creativity and judgment to solve complex, interrelated problems. At Sierra Nevada College, we take it a step further: We believe that a liberal arts education is the best way to prepare not just for your work, but for your entire life.
