Liberal Arts Education is Becoming More Important

Nicola Pitchford, School of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences, Dominican University of California


"In truth, a liberal arts graduate may actually be better equipped for today’s rough job market than students who studied a more specialized “practical” field. Recent research shows that most employers seek workers with increasingly broad skill-sets and general critical-thinking abilities. Rapid changes in job configurations demand flexibility. Humanities students are built to do well in a range of fields— in fact, they outscore business majors on standard business school admissions tests; and they beat biology and health science majors on the MCAT." ~ from the article
