We make it personal, thanks to a 9:1 student-faculty ratio that lets you connect with your professors from day one. And we think big, offering you courses in a wide breadth of disciplines and more than 50 majors that prepare you through topics of study relevant to today's global issues.

We Are Liberal Arts

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

Community-based Learning:

Hands-on, community-based learning creates partnerships that benefit both liberal arts students and those they serve.

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.

Why study the liberal arts?

Hear our professors explain the benefits of a holistic understanding of the world and the lifelong value of skills cultivated through a liberal arts education.
