Question by Porridge: How are liberal arts colleges different from the rest of higher education?
How are they different from regular art schools, private schools, public schools, and ivy leagues?

Best answer:

Answer by Alex
Liberal arts colleges are not art schools. “Liberal arts” includes humanities (history, philosophy), social science (psychology, sociology), and pure math/science (math, chemistry, physics). They generally specialize in undergraduate education, with few master’s programs and no doctorates.

This is as opposed to a university, which offers liberal arts in addition to things like engineering, business, nursing, education, architecture, and other applied sciences like agriculture. They usually offer master’s and doctoral programs

Most liberal arts colleges are private schools, though there are a few public ones. The only difference between public and private is where they get their funding. Public colleges get state funding and offer lower tuition to residents.

The Ivy League is an athletic league in the Northeast that includes several of the most prestigious colleges. They’re all private universities, though at the undergraduate level, some of them specialize in liberal arts.

An art school just teaches fine arts like painting, photography, music, and dance.
