In Defense of a Liberal Arts Education in Modern Universities by gabi marzolf

Higher education is rapidly losing sight of its historic mission of offering a brief liberal arts education...[and is] moving toward curriculum that are focused increasingly on specialized and professional preparation." (Gilbert, 1)
"Debt puts a sizable tariff on social hope." (Jeffrey Williams, 161)
"The traditional idea of an education is based on social hope...[for] younger members of society to explore their interests, develop their talents...as well as become versed in citizenship, in the belief that it will benefit society in the future." (Williams, 160)
