Develop deeper knowledge and skills in writing, speaking, and engaging today’s culture, as well as relating a biblical worldview to your work.

Humans are rational creatures; we were created to reason about what, how and why things are. The ability to reason well is a crucial skill in any realm, but especially for education, faith, relationships and work. Socrates argued that the unexamined life is not worth living. The Millis Institute seeks to help university graduates and professionals in Australia pursue the examined life in their institutions, organisations, communities and careers.

Knowing goes far beyond merely possessing information. From a Christian worldview perspective, it is a more relational, holistic venture, involving different human dimensions and capacities. The ability to see the world from these various angles – that is, to deepen lateral thinking and integrate modes of reasoning – would benefit professionals in many fields. Acquiring these skills would be especially attractive to teachers desiring to expand and deepen ways of knowing in their classrooms.

A multidisciplinary liberal arts education provides flexibility in the job market.  The liberal arts equip students to pursue a broad range of careers including teaching, journalism, law, public policy, business, history, international relations, marketing, ministry, philosophy, social science, and academia.

Whereas a specialised degree trains people for their first job, a liberal arts degree enables them to move into a second, third, or fourth job more easily.

Liberal arts at the Millis Institute forms not a tool for any single career but a key to unlocking many.
