School of Liberal Arts
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art … It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” –– C.S. Lewis, “The Four Loves”
At Merrimack College, the liberal arts tradition is a gateway to a thousand different paths in life.
Is your interest economics? What about poetry? Or is your passion the fine arts, or history or psychology?
Whatever it is, the liberal arts at Merrimack will prepare you to become a critical and creative thinker in any field. With a liberal arts foundation, you’ll have the knowledge and skills necessary to adjust to a changing world, adapt to a changing career path and appreciate a variety of values and views.
Within the liberal arts, you’ll have many opportunities for in-depth study — and, whatever your major, many opportunities to engage. In keeping with our Augustinian heritage, Merrimack’s emphasis on community inspires students to become more involved in their classes and many different activities.
Here, your learning will be alive, active and energized, whether it’s spirited classroom discussions, a service-learning project, study abroad, internships or co-op placements. Faculty members throughout the college make it a point to be accessible to their students and equally engaged in the process of your education.
