Liberal Arts Education | Top Liberal Arts Colleges in India and USA

What is liberal arts? What is the point of studying liberal arts? What are the top colleges for liberal arts in India and abroad? If you are looking for these answers, then this blog post is just for you.


The Indian education system has been a rigid one for ages. Students have been used to choose Science, engineering, medicine, arts, commerce, law – that’s it. But it’s changing now.


The new generation in India has the opportunity to study biology with classical literature, economics with psychology, languages with data science, or art & history with science & mathematics.


To be honest, it’s one of the best things to get exposed, particularly after 10+2 (at the undergraduate level). The flexibility and interdisciplinary nature of education allow students to learn by making connections between ideas and concepts across different disciplinary boundaries.

This further helps the students to select their own subjects for specialization later on. Their learning gets deepened as they are able to reflect on the connections between what they are learning across different disciplines. For instance, students will easily discover the commonly shared themes in art, literature, history, mathematics, and sciences (pure & applied).


This kind of education is very effective in making the students to gain constructivist paradigm and apply the knowledge gained in one discipline to another different discipline as a way to deepen the learning experience. Last but not least, one of the best solutions if a student is not too sure what to study after 10+2.

One of such popular interdisciplinary fields in the field of liberal arts. Liberal arts programs offer a multidisciplinary course that includes an eclectic mix of subjects from different disciplines such as the humanities, science, and commerce.


These programs cover many unrelated topics and concepts, so students may lack depth, but they gain a varied perspective. These prepare the students to develop and apply critical thinking skills by looking beyond the traditional disciplinary boundaries to consider other viewpoints and compare and contrast concepts between different subject areas. Consequently, students will learn how to consolidate knowledge by synthesizing ideas from many angles while exploring new and exciting topics.
