What Will a Liberal Arts Education Look Like in 50 Years?

What Will a Liberal Arts Education Look Like in 50 Years?

Defending the value of the liberal arts education is a common challenge to those leaving Denison and entering the workforce. In this video (above) from The Atlantic, leaders of liberal arts institutions discuss the future of education, and the role liberal arts will play down the road.

Here is a particularly interesting quote from the video:

"I want my education to be more like a toothbrush I use twice a day as opposed to something you do like once in a lifetime at the beginning of your life."

- Sebastian Thrun, CEO Udacity

· Denisonians in Law

· Denisonians in Communication & Marketing

· Denisonians in the Arts

· Denisonians in Service & Education

Steps: If you have not already, please create a LinkedIn profile (see profile tips) and join the “Denison University Network” in the Groups section. Once you are approved, return to the group's main page and then scroll down until you see the list of subgroups on the right side of the page. Click on the subgroup(s) of your choice and then click the yellow “Join” button on the top right.
