Hire UT Liberal Arts Students
You already know -- and the employer surveys we examine confirm -- that effective communication skills, taking initiative, creative problem-solving, critical thinking and analytical abilities are some of the most important competencies of today's employees. And that "passion" is an attribute that's also hugely important to bottom-line success. That's why students who have completed a liberal arts education can be so valuable to your organization.
Liberal Arts Majors:
- Take initiative by creating their own degree plan, rather than have it prescribed for them (as in business school or engineering college, for example), so they can study the topics and major(s) they feel most passionate about;
- Hone and refine their communication skills through the language and writing requirements as well as the wide variety of course papers and projects that they must fulfill;
- Are some of the most creative problem-solvers in college today because a liberal arts education introduces them to a wide variety of subjects and the opportunity to develop multiple perspectives about them;
- Must demonstrate competency in a variety of math and science courses, and many also engage in research studies with faculty assist in developing critical thinking and analysis.
In addition, we support our students in pursuing internships, study abroad and service learning experiences that help them better understand the needs of others and what they can offer the world "Beyond the Tower™."
