  • College of Arts & Sciences | Millikin University
    to improve the human condition Rooted in the classical western traditions of higher education the most fundamental concept of a liberal art is the distinction between knack and art Someone who can do something very well over and over again may have developed a knack for doing that one thing However if they are asked to explain how they do it or if they are asked to do something else in a different context they have difficulty transferring that knack to a new situation On the other hand someone who has an art not only knows the tools of the trade they also have a broader theoretical understanding of how to use those tools in a variety of situations They are not limited to simply doing the same thing over and over They can adjust and adapt to the needs the contexts the problems never faced before in a new situation Therefore the highest level of learning valued in the liberal arts is the integration of theory and practice a knowledge that transcends the particular problem combined with the ability to practice the art effectively in particular instances The goal of studying the liberal arts is to create new knowledge that can be applied in a variety of possible situations In the same way the primary goal of the sciences is to create new knowledge by means of the scientific method of investigation The sciences seek to discover understand or to understand better how the physical world works with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding It is done through observation of existing phenomena and or through experimentation that tries to simulate phenomena under controlled conditions Through research the sciences seek to discover new knowledge and ways to use that knowledge in a variety of applications In the College of Arts Sciences at Millikin University we invite students to become knowledge seekers knowledge makers and to put their knowledge to work to transform themselves their communities and their professions Come join us in this effort to learn beyond the instant to be a creator of new knowledge to go beyond knack into creative uses of knowledge to solve problems to observe the physical world and the social world and to transform ourselves and our communities and our world with our arts and sciences Welcome to Millikin University where we ask you to take the academic stage to perform your knowledge to develop habits of life long learning to start contributing to a better personal life a better community and a better world There are plenty of problems in the world You are the perfect person to develop the arts and sciences that the world needs now to solve those problems Don t settle for a knack Seek knowledge that will stick with you beyond the moment and grow and change as you apply it in a variety of situations you can t even imagine yet Dr Randy Brooks Dean of the College of Arts Sciences CAS News Academic
