Notre Dame of Maryland University says that the purpose of their General Education "is to provide a coherent yet broad intellectual experience of study in the liberal arts tradition. These studies inspire a free spirit of inquiry through observation, analysis and reflection proper to all intellectual work. They encourage the philosophical habit of mind as well as the practice of methodologies of the natural and social sciences; they provide an acquaintance with the historic, aesthetic and philosophic record of human achievement; and they explore the permanent and ultimate questions concerning the nature of person and knowledge, the nature of society and human institutions, and the nature of the natural world and God."
