The Liberal Arts Department accepts as a fundamental premise that the productivity and happiness of the educated person will be enhanced by an
acquaintance with the traditional liberal arts, that a knowledge of the literature, history, philosophy, and fine arts which form a basis for our
civilization will better enable us to understand the complexities of the world in which we live.
Accordingly, the Liberal Arts Department endeavors to present quality instruction in a broad range of disciplines such as English, foreign languages,
history, philosophy, political science, communication, and the fine arts.
These courses satisfy some core curriculum requirements for a baccalaureate degree at Lamar University and are readily transferable to other universities.
