Liberal arts education is typically broad-based and exposes students to science, mathematics, social sciences, and humanities. This broad knowledge of the wider world will prepare you to deal with complexity, diversity, and change. A liberal arts education will also help you develop a strong sense of social responsibility as well as strong and transferable intellectual and practical skills, such as communication, analytical, and problem-solving abilities, and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge and skills in real-world settings.

I think  the benefit is it’s an opportunity to pursue a variety of career options.

The range of topics, approaches, and areas covered by your liberal arts curriculum makes you fundamentally flexible, interdisciplinary, and able to adapt to changing circumstances. As you grow and evolve, you may find that what you want to pursue career-wise shifts. You might get into a profession only to find it isn’t the right fit for you. A liberal arts degree allows you to keep your career options open, as you will be trained in a variety of transferable skills, rather than just one specific skill set. Use this adaptability to help potential employers see your broad skillset as an asset rather than a liability.
