Theatre major and LAMP student

Sara Bancroft

"Through my liberal arts education Iíve gathered tools from different disciplines. I have learned to think critically about different situations and to listen and value the opinions of others even if I donít agree. I want to be a manager in the theater and someday a director as well. Without people skills and problem-solving skills, I wouldnít be able to do these jobs."

A true liberal arts education includes an appreciation of literature and the arts and the cultivation of the aesthetic judgment that makes possible the enjoyment and comprehension of works of the creative imagination. Our students must achieve the genuine literacy required to read and listen effectively, and to speak and write clearly and persuasively. The curriculum of the College of Arts and Sciences helps students discover ethical perspectives, so that they can formulate and understand their own values, become aware of others' values, and discern the ethical dimensions underlying many of the decisions they must make.
