Delaware Valley College has long subscribed to the belief that a college education should emphasize the development of communication skills and a critical understanding of our social, economic, political, and cultural heritage.
The Liberal Arts curriculum at Delaware Valley College exposes students to the richness, diversity and complexity of human history, promotes an increased self-awareness and concern for the role of the individual in society. The curriculum also develops students' ability to communicate effectively, and encourages artistic expression. Our courses encompass the fields of history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, speech, foreign languages, music and art. These courses constitute a major portion of the College's Core Curriculum and also provide content area courses for Social Studies Education majors.
