Integration of Liberal Arts

All programs in the Education Department at Mount Saint Marys’ University are grounded in perspectives of a liberal arts education. Candidates in our programs:

  • develop the art and practice of educating based on a foundation of critical inquiry and multiple perspectives, in addition to learning the skills necessary to prepare competent and responsible professionals who are able to contribute to the development of a global community;
  • approach their teaching with a holistic view that supports students in experiencing an integrated and coherent education; and
  • experience the type of student-faculty interaction in and outside of the classroom that demonstrates the commitment and intellectual striving valued by our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
