St. Bonaventure says, "Study of the liberal arts and sciences has always been the foundation of undergraduate education at St. Bonaventure. Courses and programs are designed to introduce young men and women to the world of ideas; to develop their powers of reasoning and expression; to enable them to think meaningfully about God and personal identity; to become aware of the history, literature, science, art and institutions which constitute our culture; to develop aesthetic awareness and appreciation; and to prepare them for an active and effective role in the contemporary world. To these ends, students in every school of the University pursue studies in the School of Arts and Sciences."[Source]
