The liberal arts: Not just for the unemployable anymore
Let's start with something I, as a university administrator, am not supposed to say or even think. The humanities and social sciences, the heart of the liberal arts — its students, its graduates, its practitioners — are doomed. They are doomed to irrelevancy. Doomed to shrinking numbers. Doomed to unemployment and underemployment. Doomed to live eternally in mom and dad's basement, playing video games, dining on chips and salsa, and delivering stuffed crust pizza for a living.
