By definition, a degree in Liberal Arts is a high-quality, multidisciplinary degree. It does not try to prepare for a specific discipline or profession as a degree in teaching, law, medicine, engineering, etc. would do. The degree fosters a well-grounded intellectual resilence, a disposition towards life-long learning and an acceptance of responsibility for the consequence of the students' ideas and actions. This broad-based education has been instrumental in helping Liberal Arts students to secure employment in a wide range of professions including:
  • Accountancy
  • Banking
  • Business Development
  • Community Education Officer
  • Financial Services
  • Human Resources Management
  • Broadcasting
  • Marketing and events
