    liberal art,从字面意思上我没有看到哪有文理的意思,咱们中国理工大学都是翻译为 university of technology,所以我觉得直翻 艺术学院 就行了么



    Liberal Arts mean "Academic subjects such as literature, philosophy, mathematics, and the sciences as distinct from professional and technical subjects." So all the proposed translations are not quite right either. Also I don't think 非業科 is elegant either. Really need professional translators here.
