Does a liberal arts education make it difficult to obtain specialized knowledge?
A liberal arts education enables you to overcome the borders between disciplines and learn "broadly and deeply" from any number of them.
Learning in the Liberal Arts program expands your knowledge.
ICU provides a system that helps students find the area they wish to study by allowing them to build an academic base on various disciplines. From there, students can gradually identify the discipline in which they are particularly interested. Students choose majors at the end of their sophomore year. This is an educational system based on the idea of “identifying areas of knowledge and taking time to study in a wide range of subjects,” a concept shared among a number of countries.
In addition, during this period, students learn ways of thinking and approaches that will become their intellectual foundation. These abilities may be applied to every kind of situation in their lives, and will equip them with the skills to think deeply and examine issues even as times and topics change.
Work together with your fellow classmates and friends and use your curiosity to explore the discipline that interests you the most! The ICU community is the place for you "to discover, engage in dialogue, and deepen your understanding."
