Critical Thinking Skills for Future Leaders

DelVal has long subscribed to the belief that a college education should emphasize the development of communicative skills and a critical understanding of our social, economic, political, and cultural heritage. The liberal arts curriculum at DelVal 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, develops students’ ability to communicate effectively and encourages artistic expression. Our courses encompass the fields of psychology, history, sociology, policy studies, music, art, speech and foreign languages. The department is home to the counseling psychology program and also provides courses that constitute a major portion of DelVal's core curriculum as well as content area courses for social studies education and policy atudies.

Graduates with a degree from the Department of Liberal Arts are able to:

  • Work in the mental health profession
  • Work in public policy
  • Teach
  • Research
  • Attend graduate school
  • 100% of students who apply to graduate programs are accepted!
