We Are Liberal Arts


We asked some of our faculty to tell us what "liberal arts" means to them.

The Student Experience:

The liberal arts permeate every moment of the Bucknell student experience, from the classroom and lab to conversations in residence halls and dinner with professors.

Passion. Curiosity. Breadth. Rigor.

Our professors summarize the liberal arts in one word, explain why they chose Bucknell, and describe how our curriculum helps students succeed personally and professionally.
