Skills

Times will change. Skills are forever.

The College’s story began two centuries ago, but the skills, insights, and values of our liberal arts education have never been more relevant.

An education in the College focuses on five foundational skills: Question Critically, Think Logically, Communicate Clearly, Act Creatively, and Live Ethically. These skills are prized by employers in every field and are vital to a 21st-century career. You will rely on them throughout your life. And you will develop them here.
