Liberal Arts Advantage

A Whitworth education is grounded in the liberal arts: the study of literature, languages, philosophy, history, math, psychology and science. At Whitworth, professors and students explore the interconnectedness of ideas and make new discoveries where academic disciplines intersect. Our students are well-equipped to excel in Ethics Bowl, which requires the integration of knowledge from diverse fields such as politics, ethics, psychology, science and economics.

Ethics Bowl students at Whitworth develop and strengthen their abilities to:

  • Think critically and creatively
  • Communicate clearly and compellingly
  • Analyze complex issues from a variety of perspectives
  • Synthesize diverse ideas and new information
  • Apply ethical theories in practical contexts
  • Work as a team and manage time well
