The Role of the Liberal Arts Associate’s Degree

Posted on March 2, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The economic value of a Liberal Arts degree has come under scrutiny in recent months by governors and legislatures who want to make a stand about how state and federal monies are use to subsidize tuition.  A recent higher education blog post from Hanover Research gives a great, research-informed view of the place of Liberal Arts at community colleges. 

The post includes links to useful data sources that show the increasing use of community colleges as gateways to the bachelor’s degree. They also provide evidence (pay attention politicians!) for how the liberal arts curriculum cultivates valuable career skills. I highly recommend it!
