Liberal Arts at the University of Miami
A liberal arts education teaches you how to think critically, forge connections across diverse disciplines, and communicate clearly and effectively. What does the liberal arts mean at the University of Miami? It means intellectual and cultural engagement. It means working closely with a renowned mathematics professor on original research, participating in a service-learning class that builds a children’s library for Haitian immigrants, or winning a Beyond the Book scholarship to interview Zimbabwean refugees in South Africa. Whatever your major, your studies will be enlarged and energized by internship, research, and volunteer opportunities in our remarkable city of Miami.
