How do we give B.A.'s in arts and humanities more career options without abandoning the life of the mind?
One of my roles as director of a program in the "digital liberal arts" is to close the gap between what our students are learning and the expectations of the job markets in their fields. While I don't think liberal-arts education should be at the service of employers, I do think it is important to enable our B.A.'s to build careers that allow them to continue what they valued about their undergraduate experiences.
