Talk on liberal arts colleges by reps from Bucknell U, SMU and Tulane U

We are hosting a talk by reps from Bucknell University, Southern Methodist University, and Tulane University on Monday 14 March at 4 pm. 

This session aims to demystify a few myths about liberal arts education.

Liberal arts colleges provide a well-rounded education not only in humanities and social sciences. Students can choose speciality majors like engineering, film or business. For instance students at Bucknell University can study Engineering and specialise in various majors that are certified by ABET. The representative from Southern Methodist University will share information about its various programs including the specialised BFA in film and elaborate about the curriculum, portfolio expectations and career prospects. At the session you will also learn how student at Tulane University can major in Business and take advantage of its well endowed research institutes for entrepreneurship, ethics and international business to name a few.

Please email for more details.

Bucknell University

Established in 1846, Bucknell University is highly selective, private, non-sectarian, coeducational, residential university. Students will connect with your professors both as mentors and as innovators in their fields, engage critically with diverse perspectives, learn to write well, present their ideas and apply what they learn. Bucknell offers over 50 majors and 65 minors in the arts, engineering, humanities, management, sciences and social sciences. The student-faculty ratio is 9:1, which means that professors take the time to get to know students personally and provide help and advice – and not just in class. Students become part of a thriving intellectual community that is grounded in the liberal arts and provides students with hands-on learning experiences including research, service, global programs and creative projects.  The 450-acre campus is located in Lewisburg, a historic community in central Pennsylvania. This year, Bucknell was were ranked #32 among national liberal arts colleges (U.S. News & World Report), #9 among undergraduate engineering programs by U.S. News & World Report, and #10 among liberal arts colleges for the mid-career salaries of its alumni (2012-13 PayScale College Salary Report). Bucknell students can choose from more than 50 majors and 65 minors in the arts, humanities, social sciences, sciences and engineering.

Southern Methodist University

SMU is a selective, private, comprehensive, liberal arts and sciences university near the center of Dallas with a mission to expand knowledge through academic excellence and hands-on research. SMU has 6,400 undergraduate students from more than 100 countries.   At SMU, we believe that scholars are taught and leaders are mentored. We have a 100-year history of graduating scholars who know how to lead, and our recent ranking among the nation's best colleges shows that, with drive and experience, our graduates can count on becoming prized assets in their professions. Our class sizes are small, with an average faculty-to-student ratio of 11 to 1. With more than 100 majors and minors, as well as accelerated 4 + 1 Master's programs in some schools, chances are SMU has an outstanding academic program that will open doors in your field that you may not have even known were there.

Tulane University

Tulane University, founded in 1834, is a highly selective, private research university located in New Orleans, Louisiana. There are 6,500 undergraduates on our campus, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 9:1, and over 75 majors offered. The university is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, a select group of the 62 leading research universities in the United States and Canada with “preeminent programs of graduate and professional education and scholarly research.” Research in many disciplines has flourished at Tulane through the establishment of centers such as, the Murphy Institute of Economics and the Tulane Cancer Center, among others. New Orleans has long been a city of international trade and exchange, and Tulane also values the experience our students gain from our city. As such, Tulane is well-known for its emphasis on public service and internships within the community.
