In an environment in which the average person may expect to change careers five to seven times, a liberal arts education is future proof. The liberal arts prepare students for a lifetime of change by teaching them how to learn, how to reason, and how to apply their knowledge to real-world challenges.

The thirteen departments in Bloomsburg University's College of Liberal Arts span the humanities, fine arts and social sciences. Talented faculty encourage active, engaged learning and student-faculty collaborative research while teaching critical thinking, social responsibility and creativity.

Preparation for a lifetime of change

The College of Liberal Arts at Bloomsburg University promotes the intellectual and practical skills employers value most, including effective written and oral communication, problem solving and the ability to work effectively with others. Graduates find success in a variety of careers and graduate school, taking with them greater understanding of personal and social responsibility, the importance of the arts, and the diversity of human cultures.

The best education is one that prepares today's students for tomorrow's challenges and opportunities. A liberal arts education is the best preparation for a complex, dynamic and fulfilling future.


Neal Cox's approach to photography is unique. His exhibition in the Haas Gallery shows twelve images taken with twelve different pinhole cameras that he designed and built himself. Each image and its camera are placed adjacent to each other. The cameras are complex, three dimensional objects in their own right, opening like the layers of an onion to reveal their inner workings. In some cases, there is a bit of mystery about how they work at all. The images relate to the cameras in their geometric shapes and use of color.
