Liberal arts studentAn August article in USA Today detailed how liberal arts graduates can increase their job prospects by adding technical skills to their educational background (read the full article here).

While hiring managers continue to search for employees with developed skills in critical thinking, decision making and effective communication – all tenets of a liberal arts education –  recent research indicates that liberal arts graduates who also possess skills in marketing, sales, business, social media, graphic design, data analysis and management, computer programming or  information technology networking and support can significantly increase their employability.

At JBU, we believe in education of the whole person – head, heart, hand. Our liberal arts degree not only equips you with the ability to communicate clearly and think critically, but teaches you how to apply those skills in the real world.
