Asking why is only the beginning.

At St. Edward’s University, a top liberal arts college, you’ll learn to think about the world in new ways. You’ll have to work hard, but you’ll get more out of your education. And that’s the point.

A liberal arts education means gaining a well-rounded background and set of skills that you can apply no matter where your career takes you (no matter if that’s a straight path or a winding road). Yes, you’ll specialize in a field, but you’ll study other fields as well. Scientists learn to write well, artists master the scientific method, and everyone graduates ready to tackle the most complicated problems — whether you want to save the world or get ahead in your dream career (or both).

Your education will change you — unpredictably and (we think) wonderfully, too.
