Are too few students focusing on Humanities?
I read yesterday that fewer than 8% of college students now major in humanities. The most popular major is Business Administration and then all the STEM fields.
Does this seem like a sensible mix, or has attention swung too heavily in one direction?
While I cannot now find the article, please let this interesting piece serve in its place: http://artsandhumanities.fas.harvard.edu/files/humanities/files/mapping_the_future_31_may_2013.pdf
Finally I came upon the report that motivated my question. http://humanitiescommission.org/_pdf/HSS_Report.pdf
