The Value of a Liberal Arts Degree
A liberal arts education has long been recognized in the workplace for its value and versatility. Employers say they want employees who can think critically, communicate clearly, and solve problems creatively. They emphasize the need to work collaboratively in teams, to continue learning on the job, and to view issues from multiple perspectives.
