Diverse, Interdisciplinary Education

Prepare for a complex, changing world

Through a liberal arts education, students develop multiple lenses for looking at the human experience.

But it does much more; it helps you compete for a variety of careers in an increasingly complex and evolving world. The Association of American Colleges and Universities reports that 74% of employers surveyed would recommend a liberal arts education to prepare for success in today’s global economy. They want new hires with the skills that the humanities teach: critical thinking, complex problem solving, and written and oral communications.

The nine departments of the AUM College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, while diverse in subject matter, are united in their goal to prepare students for a work world where the rules seem to be constantly changing.

Economics – A STEM Designated Degree

STEM Designated Degrees

The STEM or science, technology, engineering, and mathematics designation refers to classes and degrees that fall into these categories.  As the United States becomes even more reliant on technology and STEM related advancements, there is a shortfall of educated and qualified graduates to work in STEM positions.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) classifies careers in STEM fields as some of the highest growth and highest paying jobs in the future. For a competitive advantage, graduates with a STEM education and background could be well sought after.
