Find your place, find your future - College of Liberal Arts

A recent US Department of Labor report projects that 80 percent of the children beginning kindergarten today will eventually enter jobs that don’t exist yet. So, how do students prepare to enter such an ever-changing workforce? How do you obtain the skills and knowledge that can work as a basis for any career?

With one of the 30 bachelor degrees, or 17 graduate degrees in the 12 departments of the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University, you are on your way.

Find your place in the College of Liberal Arts, then find your place in the world.

Employers desire transferable skills—the kind earned with a liberal arts education.

A recent AT&T survey found that liberal arts majors advance more quickly to middle and senior management positions, and research conducted by the National Association of College and Employers found that written and verbal communication skills, the ability to solve complex problems, to work well with others, and the ability to adapt are crucial to success in the workplace. Degree programs in the College of Liberal Arts teach people to think creatively, critically, and independently; to communicate effectively; and to adapt to change and see things from all perspectives.
