For Markos Scheer (PoliSci’90), time studying in the College of Arts and Sciences yielded more than just a degree. It built the foundation for a topsy-turvy career that would eventually land him off the coast of southeastern Alaska doing something he never expected: launching the largest kelp farm of its kind in the United States.
Scheer is one of legions of the college's alumni to benefit from the knowledge and skills cultivated by a liberal arts education. Those skills—critical thinking, communication, creativity—not only allow students to prepare for jobs that may be immediately ahead; it prepares them for careers not yet even imagined.
If you believe the liberal arts will lead you into a dead-end career, consider the value and think again.
