TOP LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES
A study released this month shows that a liberal arts education is associated with greater odds for students to become leaders, be seen as ethical, appreciate arts and culture and lead a more fulfilling and happy life. The study, done by Richard A. Detweiler, president of the Great Lakes Colleges Association, is data-driven:
- Adults with a liberal arts background had a 30% to 100% increased chance of having positions of leadership
- A liberal arts background led to adults who are 22% to 66% more likely to contribute to society through methods such as volunteering and charitable giving
- There is a 25% to 35% higher likelihood to find satisfaction and happiness in life among those who as undergraduates discussed issues with those who disagreed with them and had in-class discussions on varied philosophical, literary and ethical viewpoints - all hallmarks of a liberal arts education.
