1. For years, those of us in education have heard a lot about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math — also known as STEM. The STEM (Links to an external site.) disciplines are worthy areas of study. Concerned parents often advise their children to study these disciplines because job opportunities are seemingly better in STEM areas. But in today’s global world, the liberal arts are critical to success in every economic sector. They play an essential part in providing a foundation for learning in every professional field.
2. All successful careers require critical thinking and teamwork. They also all require sensitivity to cultural, social, and political differences. A liberal arts education provides this grounding. Most people will have six to ten jobs during their careers, and liberal arts majors are the most adaptable to new circumstances. No one knows what the jobs of the future will be. A liberal arts degree provides a great foundation for adjusting to new careers and further education.
3. The Association of American Colleges and Universities recently released the results of a new national survey (Links to an external site.) of employers. In the survey, the employers describe what college graduates need to succeed in a global economy. The findings clearly demonstrate the importance of the liberal arts.
4. Nearly all those surveyed (93 percent) say that thinking critically, communicating clearly, and solving complex problems are more important than a candidate’s undergraduate major. They also stressed the importance of ethical judgment, integrity, and intercultural skills. Many additionally noted the capacity for continued new learning.
5. Increasingly, we are inundated by information from multiple sources. Graduates need to know how to quickly analyze content and apply reliable information for personal or professional use. These skills are developed with liberal arts training and are critical in all aspects of life today.
6. In a country of divided politics, a liberal education enables critical thinking and the capacity to put tough issues into a larger context. Such graduates will develop skills to help our country implement solutions rather than simply continue arguments.
7. A good job and top salary out of college would be wonderful. However, a fulfilling career, a meaningful life, and active citizenship are just as important.
