Bridgewater College

Bridgewater, VA

Bridgewater College says, "A liberal arts education is more than the broad skills and knowledge acquired from studying such areas as literature, history, philosophy and the arts. On a deeper level, a liberal arts education refers to the development of critical thinking, the ability (and desire) to question, examine and understand issues and ideas with increasing clarity and depth."
