Liberal Studies Core Curriculum

A Truman education empowers you to succeed in your first job after college as well as in any profession you pursue throughout your life. How do we do this? By instilling the value of asking the great questions; cultivating the practical intellect; and developing your critical-thinking, problem-solving and communication skills that allow you adapt and learn on the job — skills that will benefit you throughout your life. You develop capabilities that allow you to handle different situations that may evolve and the agility to use multiple approaches to solve problems and find innovative solutions that others may overlook.
