Programme structure

There are many elements that give the iCLA curriculum its unique character. One extremely important factor is our dedication to the philosophy of liberal arts education. A liberal arts education contains both depth and breadth, as students study a variety of disciplines while acquiring a deep understanding of their chosen major.

Positive elements of a liberal arts education include the development of critical thinking,
collaboration, communication, and creative problem-solving skills, all of which bring an important well-roundedness to student education. Student learning experiences are enhanced by the small student-to-teacher ratios which allow for close interaction between students and faculty, and careful monitoring of student progress over time.
