Liberal Arts Advantage

The Liberal Arts Advantage (LAA) is a program supporting Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences students by enriching their intellectual life beyond the classroom. Its primary goal is to welcome and engage AHSS students into the liberal arts intellectual community by articulating the value of a liberal arts education. It does this in three main ways:

  • It hosts programs and invites students to attend.
  • It assists students in transitioning their liberal arts degrees into careers.
  • It serves as a transitional advising area for students who are between advisers or have unique academic circumstances.
