Mills College

Oakland, CA

Mills College says, "General education is the hallmark of a true liberal arts education, distinguishing it from an education focused solely on a specialized field. At Mills, we understand the importance of a student’s major for developing focused skills and knowledge in a specific field; however, we also know that our students come to us to gain a breadth of experiences, ideas, and skills. At the foundation of this program is our belief that a liberal arts education should offer the opportunity to explore and master a varied set of skills, perspectives, and disciplinary experiences."
