Liberal Studies Alumni advance Seattle University’s tradition of excellence by applying their extensive humanities and sciences coursework in careers, community engagement, and professional training in graduate school.
Some examples of recent alumni:
He came all the way from Nebraska and dropped out after two years. James Morran did not take the usual path to go on for a doctorate degree.
Morran, who grew up in Omaha, entered the College of Arts and Sciences as a history major in 1999. By 2002, he was working in Starbucks. Fast forward to 2010, and James Morran is back at the college earning his B.A. in Liberal Studies, married to Megan (School of Nursing, class of 2003), and focused on becoming a pharmacist.
He came back with a vengeance.
“I explored everything I thought I missed the first time,” he said recently, “and Liberal Studies helped me broaden my perspective. I learned not only about who I was but who I wanted to be in the future.”
Morran credits Professor Sven Arvidson with developing his introspection and critical thinking. Service learning projects and working in the community added to his awareness.
“Liberal Studies emphasizes the importance of developing good interpersonal skills and knowing about others,” he said. “I learned to communicate well with people from all walks of life. We also dealt with ethical issues. Those skills are very important in health care. I know I’m much better prepared for professional school than I would have been if I just did science.”
Morran, who graduated in 2011, is pursuing a doctorate in pharmacy at Creighton University.
