Why Liberal Arts and Social Sciences at Belmont?

The Liberal Arts and Social Sciences are at the heart of the Belmont University experience. Our programs emphasize the liberal arts in theory and practice, as we encourage students both to understand and to participate in the world around them.

Our small and interactive classes mean closer relationships with fellow classmates and faculty mentors. Our professors are enthusiastic, innovative, and accessible teachers and scholars. Engaged learning is the norm, whether it's challenging students to lead a seminar, to produce and present their creative or professional work, to integrate service and learning, to participate in a practicum or internship, to use state-of-the-art equipment, or to develop their own independent research projects or professional portfolios. Our students possess lofty aspirations, and we foster these goals through rigorous courses, abundant out-of-class opportunities for interaction, and a well-trained faculty whose primary focus is outstanding teaching and advising.

Are you looking for an exciting learning community where you can explore ideas and issues and prepare for a stimulating future? We can help you fulfill your goals. Many of our graduates go on to prestigious institutions for further learning while others enjoy successful careers in many fields.

Helping you hone the skills necessary for a satisfying professional life is very significant to us but, more importantly, we want to cultivate within you a lifelong passion for learning, reflection, and participation in your communities. This is why from the heart of the Belmont experience in the liberal arts, our students truly can go 'from here to anywhere.'
