Liberal Arts Programs

At the core of a liberal arts education are its breadth and its emphasis on multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives in problem-solving. The problems in today's and tomorrow's worlds are increasingly complex and, therefore require decisions that are formulated from wide and multiple perspectives.

The goals of the liberal arts programs at Rider University help students learn critical skills to analyze information and alternatives critically, focusing on collaboration with students and faculty members and those who may differ from us in background and experiences. The programs at Rider provide real-world learning experiences to prepare students for a successful future.

No other form of education provides such characteristics and preparation for living. And our graduates prove just how diverse the liberal arts program is. Bankers, journalists, lawyers and authors have all received degrees in liberal arts.
