Ramapo College of New Jersey

Mahwah, NJ

Ramapo College of New Jersey says, "Situating students in a critical context is paramount if they are to grasp the complex nature of social, political and psychological issues in the twenty-first century. Without adequate grounding in the liberal arts, students cannot develop the abstract thinking skills to grapple with issues like the problematic nature of economics growth and development, cultural studies and the arts, the contemporary nature of the nation-state, the relevance of the human genome project for the the development of drug therapies, the impact of laboratory information systems in chemistry, and the changing hegemony of psychological theories."
