Liberal Arts Careers

At Niagara University, the liberal arts program allows students to design their own major to match their career interests or explore areas of study outside of established disciplines.  The interdisciplinary study involved in connecting multiple disciplines in the senior seminar can be a very useful career skill.  In addition to the career contacts below, students are encouraged to seek out and talk to a variety of people who are connected to their career interests.
