Liberal Arts

Working in the arts requires writing, communication, and entrepreneurial skills, as well as excellent critical-thinking and problem-solving abilities.

With Berklee’s liberal arts curriculum, you’ll be empowered to express your sense of values, ethics, and civic engagement in an array of contexts, and will relate your studies in the arts to politics, literature, and science. Ultimately, the broad knowledge and transferable skills you will obtain in these courses will help you grow and develop holistically as a person while preparing you for the choices you will encounter throughout your life.
