LIBERAL ARTS PLUS
A WABASH LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION prepares you to think critically and lead effectively. Selectively choosing a liberal arts path can focus your thinking, skills, and opportunities to effectively tackle society's challenges. The Liberal Arts Plus co-curricular initiatives cross disciplines to educate Wabash men to critically lead, think, and live humanely.
The right to free expression is a necessary component of democracy. In the Wabash Democracy & Public Discourse initiative, students learn to participate in and lead deliberation, discussion, debate, and advocacy to better cultivate the thoughtful exchange of ideas on important public concerns. The initiative equips student leaders to stimulate productive conversations in communities to solve problems.
You spend hours in the classroom studying economics, sociology, language, ethics, and biology. Where can you put all this coursework into practice? In your communities - global or local, understanding the complex issues involved in the health of our communities requires a multidisciplinary approach. The Wabash Global Health Initiative provides curricular and experiential opportunities for students.
The Center for Innovation, Business & Entrepreneurship program teaches students entrepreneurial and business skills and provides the tools to be innovative business leaders. A liberal arts degree provides a student many different paths into a business career.
Digital media and the surrounding culture can shape a young man's values in a constructive way to enrich all of society. The initiative provides working artists in residence to explore studio, lab, and other forms of expression. Students gain a broader perspective of the practical application of digital arts.
