"The modern use of the term liberal arts consists of four areas: the natural sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities."
Oxford: (arts) subjects of study primarily concerned with human creativity and social life, such as languages, literature, and history (as contrasted with scientific or technical subjects)

  Comments:
Most of the JEs don't have "liberal arts" either. It doesn't seem like a good fit. I think "arts" is better.

koj: 自然科学・社会科学に対して、哲学・歴史学・文学など人間文化を研究対象とする学問の総称。
https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/人文科学
かつて主流であった学問を二分する分類法が採用されていた時代に、片方は自然科学、残りは現在社会科学に分類される学問も、「文化科学」と纏められていた。しかし、118世紀から19世紀にかけて、政治学・経済学・法学などがいずれも固有の領域を確定したことで、これらは、「社会科学」と呼ばれて分けられるようになった。
  Comments:
I don't think "social sciences" should be a gloss.
