Can the Liberal Arts Save Society?

  • October 28, 2016

  • King's College - KTS Hall, New Academic Building

Our cost of living is soaring, technological advances shine a light on the sciences, and our arts & culture sector seems stuck in peril: it is no shock that fewer and fewer young people looking to pursue a post-secondary education cast a friendly eye on the pursuit of the “impractical” liberal arts, despite studies that show minimal long-run financial gain for those who eschew the arts. Spur asks: what is the true value of a liberal arts education, both to the individual, and to the wider society? And how are trends both within education and more broadly, impacting on the future of liberal arts?
