For liberal arts colleges and universities today, the liberal arts refer both to content areas (math, science, humanities, arts) and to skill areas (critical & creative thinking, speaking, reading, writing, and doing art & science). Liberally educated persons ask good questions, don’t stop at the first answer, and contribute responsibly to their world.
At Mars Hill University, the liberal arts curriculum has three parts:
The Honors Program is a unique curricular program, designed in 2009 by faculty members from all three of Mars Hill University’s academic divisions and based on research into best practices in college honors education across the country. The program features a multi-disciplinary approach that complements the university’s interdisciplinary general education core.
The Mars Hill University Writing Center offers free writing tutoring for all MHU students. Writing Center tutors are trained to provide assistance at all stages of the writing process, from prewriting to revising final drafts, and they work with writers in all disciplines.
The Math Center offers free assistance with assignments for math courses. You can bring your assignment, class notes, and work you have started on completing the assignment and peer tutors will be happy to help students with their questions.
The Center for Community Engagement is designed to make connections—between the campus and the wider community, between learning in and learning out of the classroom, between faith and academics, between action and reflection. The center also offers a certificate in community engagement.
