Researchers. Truth Seekers. Idea Explorers.
A liberal arts education at Hollins is more than just a list of classes you take to earn a degree. From our newly redesigned “Core” program (core curriculum) through our senior thesis option, our approach is to equip you with the skills, knowledge, and experience you need to succeed when you graduate so you’re prepared for whatever comes next. We offer programs that will challenge you to think deeply and critically while exploring new perspectives and discovering what really drives you.
"The liberal arts have taught me to understand, not just observe; to be fair, not opinionated; to think holistically, intuitively, playfully, and inductively; to think randomly as well as linearly; to be unafraid of ambiguity, newness, and novelty; to take intellectual risk; to seek to answer questions and then to question the answers; and never to let a conclusion be the place I just got tired of thinking."
