"It is impossible to teach without the courage to love, without the courage to try a thousand times without giving up. In short, it is impossible to teach without a forged, invented, and well-thought-out capacity to love." —Paulo Freire in Teachers as Cultural Workers: Letters to Those Who Dare to Teach

The liberal arts for education major is designed to give a comprehensive background distributed among the following disciplines: fine arts; language; religion, philosophy, and culture; history; English composition and literature; social science; human development; mathematics; and natural science.
