Liberal Arts and Education


The Division of Liberal Arts and Education reflects the historic and continuing commitment of Saint Augustine's University to prepare professionals who can excel and lead as enlightened citizens and educators who will impact and transform the diverse global community.


In keeping with the liberal arts tradition and mission of the college, the Division of Liberal Arts and Education provides educational opportunities that prepare students for a myriad of careers, graduate study, teaching, and professional schools, while enhancing their understanding and appreciation of various cultural and historical heritages.

Central to this mission is the development of a global aesthetic sense, informed by strong communication, interpersonal, and analytical skills that inextricably connect success and ethical choices. Thus, faculty employ various pedagogies in which educational, cultural, socio-economic, political, and religious concepts are profoundly examined, including experiential learning, learning communities, problem-based learning, instructional technology and mentoring.

Students graduating from the liberal arts and education programs are prepared to become lifelong learners who exhibit compassion, creativity, problem solving, and civic engagement.
