Q. What skills and competencies can you develop with a liberal arts background and how might you use them to build a fulfilling career as an individual, as a professional and as a citizen?

The diversity, broadness and the application of liberal arts education to real life are the major attraction for opting to study liberal arts at my college level. I am excited about the fact I will study different courses which will contribute to my development as a professional, individual and a responsible citizen. Liberal arts will serve as a foundation for further professional studies at university level and also for my future career. In today's fast growing world where every second technologies advance, researches progress, new ideas flourish and new discoveries and inventions come forward, I believe that my liberal arts back ground will play a vital role in swinging with all complexities and challenges. The diverse body of knowledge that I will gain from a liberal arts education, together with analytical and examination skills, I will be able to carve my own opinions, attitudes, values, and beliefs, based on inspection, and assessment of argument and evidence. Of course, I will shape a brighter and positive picture of my future and society with great leadership skills while continuing to grow and enrich, making lifelong friendships, enjoying variant cultures and opinions, and struggling to succeed in all fields of life.

Please give your opinions tell me ho can i improve this n help with the topic please!

If the word limit allows more space, then go for it, write a few more skills that you expect to learn- things that will really help you advance your career plan. Always be sure to emphasize what you plan to do when you get your degree. I think it is ok the way it is, but there is still room for improvement. Good luck in school.

Hi AryanK,
I'm here :D

liberal arts back ground

... background is one word : )

I think you have not adequately told about why you believe liberal arts would help develop you to be a professional, individual and a responsible citizen. It sounds too general; tell them how it would improve your professionalism; help you grow as a person and become more responsible. Have yourself in the centre! :)

It's a well written essay. you have aptly described the benefits of a liberal art education. That's really nice. The only thing i feel is that you have used the word 'Liberal Art' in a very generic way. What i mean is, that although you have mentioned the good things about it... it is still unclear that as to 'What is there is a Liberal Arts curriculum that will actually make a difference to you' ? eg. you may say, taking english writing classes would help you learn to present your thoughts in a better way, knowledge of history may give you some lessons that would help you solve problems on today... etc.

Hope this helps !!

PS: I request you to help me with my essay incase you liked my comments

Cheers!
