Call for Change in Liberal Education
Caron, Rosemary M.
College Teaching, v58 n1 p1-2 Jan-Mar 2010
The national initiative that undergraduate students receive education in public health is well-aligned with the philosophy of liberal education which recommends that baccalaureate students receive a wide breadth of knowledge, adaptable skills, principled values, and a sense of societal responsibility. This article explores this new application of liberal education and its implications for the baccalaureate student and faculty. The author describes one university's response to this initiative by providing a relative framework for a course that may serve as a model for other liberal arts institutions that are attempting to heed this call for an educated public.
