Liberal Arts Under Attack

Presentation by Dave Collamer. Over the centuries critics have argued about the usefulness of a liberal arts education, one that emphasizes thinking and reflection about history, philosophy, literature, science, and the arts. And since the Great Recession of 2008, parents and students are wondering whether such an education is helpful in getting a job in this difficult economy, much less worth the incredible cost of a bachelor's degree. Dave takes a look at the assumptions we make and whether the liberal arts have indeed become a frill that students can do without.
