Podcast - Liberal Arts? In This Job Market?

( Click here to download the podcast )

The American Liberal Arts College is known for its small class sizes, individual attention, and atmosphere meant to inspire intellectual curiosity in its students. But is this appealing enough to today’s students who face an exceptionally tough job market when they get out? Especially now that higher education is getting more and more expensive? W. Robert Connor thinks it is.

Connor graduated from Princeton College with a PhD in Classics in 1961, and went on to be a professor there for over twenty years. He then worked as the president of the Teagle Foundation, which advocates for liberal arts in higher education. Currently, he serves as the senior advisor to the president. Producer John Tulenko interviewed Connor about why he thinks liberal arts education remains as a valuable path for American students.
