Baker University

Baldwin City, KS

Baker University says, "The baccalaureate degree is composed chiefly of a major discipline and a liberal education, or those areas of study and experience that liberate the mind and prepare students for many future courses of action. In choosing to attend a liberal arts institution, students expect to gain a depth of knowledge in their chosen field in addition to a breadth of knowledge and abilities in many areas of study, all of which leads to the education of the whole self. The Quest program equips students with the abilities, knowledge, and experiences needed to be well-educated and well-rounded individuals." [Source]
