Why Study STEM at Liberal Arts College?
Students in STEM - even future engineers and doctors - need liberal arts education to succeed.
Experts in the field, such as three Dartmouth professors who recently collaborated
on a piece for The Conversation, confirm that liberal arts disciplines are not only complementary to STEM education—they're fundamental.
With employers seeking graduates with broader skills, universities are adopting EMU's long-time approach to developing "T-shaped" professionals. The stem of the "T" represents the technical skills and the mastery of a concept or field of study. What many non-EMU graduates are missing is the top of the "T"... those universal skills that are valuable in all fields and industries, such as the ability to collaborate, empathy, understanding of other cultures, and general people skills.
