The Liberal Arts

FACT: Some of the coolest courses you’ll ever take won’t be in your major.
Liberal arts can take you from the bright side (Color and Light) to the dark side (Crime Scene Chemistry) and everywhere in between. You’ll discover the big city (Art in New York), the big picture (Issues in the Humanities and Technology), and big ideas (Intro to Western Philosophy). See your major in new ways (Geometry and the Art of Design, Issues in the Humanities and Technology) or delve into challenging issues (Sex Roles, Marriage, and Family in Transition, Religion and Religious Dissent in American History)—and grow in ways you never imagined.

Love Your Liberal Arts

  • Read great books, write poems or screenplays.
  • Learn another language.
  • Understand world cultures.
  • Become a well-rounded person.

Consider the Presidential Scholars Honors Program if you’re a highly motivated, academically gifted student. High school students should apply in the fall of their senior year.

Some of your liberal arts courses will also fulfill the SUNY/FIT General Education requirements.
