Liberal Arts College?


What are some of the biggest differences between liberal arts colleges and universities?


Liberal arts colleges typically rely heavily on student participation and encourage a high level of student-teacher interaction, mentorship and collaboration. Whereas Universities tend to prioritize research, Liberal arts colleges have more staff members devoted to teaching full-time, rather than a mix of graduate teaching assistants and research professors. Most liberal arts colleges are small and residential, with smaller enrollment and class sizes and a lower student-teacher ratio.
