Liberal Arts?

<p>If a college is classified as "liberal arts" what exactly does that mean? and generally, would a liberal arts college not have great pre med programs?</p>

<p>Pre-med can be done in any major at any four year school which offers the pre-med courses (chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, physics, calculus, English writing, and possibly some other courses). All such courses are considered part of "liberal arts" subjects.</p>

<p>LACs are outstanding schools for pre-med. Liberal arts refers to academic disciplines which encompass the sciences and humanities. But in the U.S., a "liberal arts college" is a particular type of small college - usually but not necessarily private - that is primarily or exclusively focused on undergraduate education. Note that you can also study liberal arts subjects at large universities that are not considered "liberal arts colleges."</p>

<p>A liberal arts college is a small, often undergraduate exclusive institution that offers degrees requiring study in a wide variety of different subject areas. Student-faculty ratios are low in comparison to national universities. Liberal arts college foster the ideals of "learning for the sake of learning".</p>

<p>Students from liberal arts colleges earn some of the most PhDs per capita in the nation and many LACs top Harvard, Yale, and Princeton.</p>
