The Liberal Arts

According to statistics, 41% of Americans are not employed in the fields that they studied in school. In addition, studies show that the average worker changes careers five to six times during the course of his or her lifetime. Clearly, your college education needs to prepare you to be more than a narrowly trained professional.

Your academic journey must provide you with the skills you’ll need to meet all kinds of life challenges—from fulfilling the demands of your first job to finding success and satisfaction throughout your lifetime. That means your education should offer opportunities to hone your skills as an independent problem-solver, a confident communicator, and a lifelong learner.

At Randolph College, you’ll learn to be all of that and more through our rigorous liberal arts program. Whatever your long-term goals or career plans, whatever major and concentrations you choose, your experience at Randolph will foster capacities essential to your long-term success. You’ll graduate ready to face the world, prepared to compete, and able to:

  • think critically
  • write and speak with clarity and accuracy
  • employ quantitative reasoning
  • use technology effectively and ethically
  • cultivate an aesthetic sensibility
  • understand key dimensions of the heritage of more than one society
  • approach problems with creativity and imagination
  • work both independently and collaboratively
  • recognize the power and limitations of knowledge
