Celebration of Scholarship

College of Liberal Arts Celebration of Scholarship

Whether practical or theoretical, research is done through many methods and for many purposes — even to simply introduce a historical figure to the Internet.

And Curtis Bratton, a senior history major, is doing just that. He’s helping to bring the legacy of Harry L. Magee, a well-known Bloomsburg business owner of the 20th century and a collector of many things, into focus for today’s digital generation. This semester Bratton archived a collection of Magee's scrapbooks that will be used to create an online searchable database. His work will be among the wide variety of College of Liberal Arts’ research and scholarship projects on display later this month.

College of Liberal Arts

In an environment in which the average person may expect to change careers five to seven times, a liberal arts education is future proof. The liberal arts prepare students for a lifetime of change by teaching them how to learn, how to reason, and how to apply their knowledge to real-world challenges. The thirteen departments in Bloomsburg University's College of Liberal Arts span the humanities, fine arts and social sciences. Talented faculty encourage active, engaged learning and student-faculty collaborative research while teaching critical thinking, social responsibility and creativity.

The College of Liberal Arts at Bloomsburg University promotes the intellectual and practical skills employers value most, including effective written and oral communication, problem solving and the ability to work effectively with others. Graduates find success in a variety of careers and graduate school, taking with them greater understanding of personal and social responsibility, the importance of the arts, and the diversity of human cultures.

The best education is one that prepares today's students for tomorrow's challenges and opportunities. A liberal arts education is the best preparation for a complex, dynamic and fulfilling future.
