The Liberal Arts

LIBERAL ARTS here
BROAD AND ENDURING FOUNDATION

Muhlenberg College is committed to liberal arts education and has been since its founding in 1848.

Alumni value this broad-based education, crediting Muhlenberg with teaching them how to solve problems, think critically and write well. In fact, there’s never been a time when the liberal arts have been more important. Today’s economy is more unpredictable than ever. Students face the challenge of preparing for jobs that don’t yet exist. They need an education that gives them the broadest possible array of analytical and intellectual tools so they can meet the future with confidence.



QUESTIONING COSTS
now
FINANCIAL AID IS CRUCIAL

With rising college costs, families are seriously questioning the value of a liberal arts education, particularly at a highquality private college. The cost and availability of financial aid is becoming critically important. The most recent StudentPoll conducted by the College Board and the Art & Science Group found that families ranked “availability of financial aid” and “cost of attendance” among top factors driving college choice. And the reality is, Muhlenberg runs out of scholarship and grant funds each year before the College runs out of needy students.
