“For some students, especially in the sciences, the knowledge gained in college may be directly relevant to graduate study. For almost all students, a liberal arts education works in subtle ways to create a web of knowledge that will illumine problems and enlighten judgement on innumerable occasions in later life.” — Derek Bok, former President, Harvard University
