What is a liberal arts education? Think of it as an invitation—an invitation to expand your mind, to pursue your curiosity, and to experience the full color and texture of the world around you. A liberal arts experience at Gettysburg College is about embracing the synergy between all academic disciplines, and applying these lessons to every aspect of your life. It’s about developing an agile mind capable of solving complex problems—and a heart that aspires to do so.
College should be about more than training for one job; it should be about preparing for a lifetime of work. That’s what we provide for our students at Gettysburg College—an exceptional education in the liberal arts and sciences.
