Why Choose a Liberal Arts Degree
Liberal Arts students make connections across broad fields of study. They think creatively and critically, learn the nuances of human behavior, and understand the cultural values driving societies.
As the oldest Catholic institution of higher education in Florida, Saint Leo University has a century-long tradition of seeking balanced growth in mind, body and spirit for students of all faiths. Rooted in the 1,500-year-old Benedictine tradition, the University creates a student-centered environment in which love of learning is of prime importance.
Take a common core of courses in the social and natural sciences, humanities, fine arts, religion and philosophy. Attend lectures by noted intellectuals like filmmaker Ralph Clemente and historical novelist Ron Hansen. Contribute to Saint Leo's literary magazine Sandhill Review, and to Empiricus: The Sunshine Journal for Collaborative Undergraduate Research. As a Liberal Arts student at Saint Leo, you will deepen your capacity for critical thinking, problem solving and creativity, and learn to participate effectively in the global community.
Our 16:1 student-teacher ratio at University Campus is just another reason why Saint Leo is ranked one of the top universities in the South by U.S. News & World Report.
