The Miami faculty have been really helpful and instrumental in my learning, in my development as a person and as a student. They really care about you both inside and outside the classroom.

There's definitely merit in a liberal arts education. You get to explore many different disciplines ... The College of Arts and Science really does give you the opportunity to explore different avenues of what may fit you specifically.

The geography class I took last semester was geared toward the media and what I was doing with communication. It's really helpful that liberal arts education helps you to put two and two together.

I picked Miami and it's been great! … With my broader experience in liberal arts education, I'll be able to work outside the box, outside of my comfort zone, instead of being very focused on one particular discipline.
