There is an enormous part of the economy hungry for graduates with skills in analysis and communications -- skills students are honoring as they conduct close readings of texts, persuade their classmates in seminars and hone the style and structure of papers.

AAC&U's employer surveys confirm, year after year, that the skills employers value most in the new graduates they hire are not technical, job-specific skills, but written and oral communication, problem solving, and critical thinking— exactly the sort of "soft skills" humanities majors tend to excel in.

Let's not forget what Steve Jobs said as recently as the iPad 2 launch: "It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough. That it's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing."

It's no accident that many of our future medical school students attended liberal arts colleges. We look for students who are curious about and have an understanding of humanity, our history, our present and our future. An education that blends art and science not only helps them become great physicians who care about patients, but also helps them become exceptional citizens of the world.

"Even STEM-centric jobs require basic writing skills: for example, it's the second most-requested professional skill for engineering and IT occupations. However, many employers find graduates lacking in this area."
