New article by Professor Paul Axelrod in YaleGlobal online

Paul Axelrod“The perception that science, technology, engineering and mathematics matter more, economically and academically, than the humanities and social sciences abounds around the world,” writes Professor Emeritus Paul Axelrod in an article for YaleGlobal online titled "Are STEM Fields Over Prioritized in Higher Education?".  Axelrod argues that this approach neglects the essential role that the arts and social sciences play in the university and in society as a whole. He notes that no matter what program they come from, university graduates often end up in jobs unrelated to their area of study, and that this trend is merely a sign of education’s versatility rather than its irrelevance.
