Liberal Arts

Expand your world of knowledge with the liberal arts

Too often parents and students hear the message that a liberal arts degree has no value in the workplace, but that just isn’t true. It can provide a strong foundation of knowledge and critical-thinking skills. TCC’s liberal arts program prepares you for a wide variety of fields: business, the arts, education, and public service – to name a few!
