University of Kentucky

Lexington, KY

The University of Kentucky says, "A university education is more than simply learning a set of skills in a specific area in preparation for a job or career. A university education is designed to broaden the students' understanding of themselves, of the world we live in, of their role in our global society, and of the ideals and aspirations that have motivated human thought and action throughout the ages. It must help individuals effectively put into action their acquired knowledge, to provide the bases for critical thinking and problem solving, and to develop life-long learning habits." [Source]
