Merge lists[edit]

I placed a merge tag with the list of colleges by country on the Liberal arts college page. It might be a good idea to merge this list as is to the longer list of colleges - and re-organize that list by country. Or, have two parts to it, one which is alphabetical, and one which is by country. There is already a subarticle called List of liberal arts colleges in the United States.-Classicfilms 14:03, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

I merged the list from the liberal arts college page and reorganized this list by country. This follows a similar list,List of current and historical women's universities and colleges. Also the list of schools in the U.S. is organized by state in a similar fashion - List of American institutions of higher education. -Classicfilms 16:05, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Criteria?[edit]

I have removed Tilburg University from the list. It has several undergraduate programmes, one of which is in liberal arts. The institution as a whole, however, does not have a liberal arts emphasis. It is generally concerned with business, economics and law (as the article on Tilburg explains). To be in this list, I think an institution should be focussed on the liberal arts. This would normally mean, for example, that most students study the liberal arts for at least a part of their degree. --Duncan (talk) 22:29, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
