The College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt says, "The end product of a successful liberal arts education is a thoughtful citizen who is prepared to take up his or her rights and responsibilities in a democratic society, to analyze and critique received information, to articulate the issues at hand or the personal values at stake, and whose intellectual life is marked by ongoing internal dialogue with the self about the quality and meaning of life for him or her, as well as for the community at large."
