Liberal arts colleges are primarily colleges or universities with an emphasis upon undergraduate study in the liberal arts. The Encyclopædia Britannica Concise offers the following definition of the liberal arts as a, "college or university curriculum aimed at imparting general knowledge and developing general intellectual capacities, in contrast to a professional, vocational, or technical curriculum."[1] Although the genesis for what is known today as the liberal arts college began in Europe,[2] the term is commonly associated with the United States. Liberal arts colleges are found in countries all over the world as well. See the list (link) of international members of the Association of American Colleges and Universities for other institutions offering liberal arts education programs.

Liberal arts colleges in the United States are usually four-year colleges which lead students to a bachelor's degree. Some, such as Augsburg College and Point Loma Nazarene University, lead students to obtaining a master's or doctoral degree. The colleges are either coeducational, women's, or men's colleges. Some liberal arts colleges are secular (or not affiliated with a particular religion), while others are involved in religious education. Colleges such as New England College, Hampshire College, Pitzer College, Sarah Lawrence College, Beloit College, Bard College at Simon's Rock, Bennington College, New College of Florida, and Reed College offer experimental curricula.
