What is the value of a liberal arts education in the 21st
This essay opportunity offers you the chance to reflect on the
value of a liberal arts education. We ask you to consider
thoughtfully the ways in which the content and process of a liberal
arts education throw light on the question of what kind of
education is most worth pursuing, not only with respect to your
future life and ambitions, but also with respect to the life you
live now and the kind of person you are turning yourself into,
moment by moment, day by day, choice by choice.
