Follow Your Dreams While Learning Your Craft with a Liberal Arts Education

A liberal arts education prepares you to meet career and life challenges as educated and responsible citizens of local, national and international communities. At Lake Erie College, we educate you beyond simple professional training, but as global citizens capable of contributing value to your community. LEC encourages intellectual openness, curiosity, and a critical examination of both societal and personal values and beliefs.

The disciplines housed in the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences are essential to both individual and societal growth as sources of emotional, moral and intellectual beauty. They allow us to explore, explain and understand human behavior. Practitioners develop moral insight and understanding and engage in the power of creativity.


Why Lake Erie College?

One of the truly special elements of a Lake Erie College education is the close relationships students develop with faculty.

    Because of those well-connected faculty who work closely with students to identify their career goals and intellectual passions, our students have pursued internships at major communication firms, in political field offices, at publishing houses, at local art studios, at TV networks, at local and state government agencies, at international heritage sites, at law firms, at historical societies and at social service community organizations.

  • The Power to Dream Big

    Students also have won national competitions with their work, most recently including a Graphic Design USA award, which recognizes outstanding achievement in the field of graphic design. It is the mentorship of our Lake Erie College faculty that enables our students to dream big dreams and set big goals, as we equip students with the knowledge and critical thinking skills to achieve their career and life ambitions. Guiding students in empowering themselves as they chart a life of personal and professional significance is a hallmark of a Lake Erie College education. All of that starts in the small classes and lifelong mentoring relationships that develop once a student joins our Storm family. At LEC, you will develop and provide outlets for skills in all modes of communication. Majoring in any one of these liberal arts education disciplines fosters the skills, attitudes and abilities necessary for personal and professional success.
