For decades I've read how important the Arts are to colleges, yet when the going gets tough they are among the first programs cut.

Come on - which is it?! If a future college education becomes all about how you're going to get a job on the medical campus or in some tech field, then I'm sorry - we are going to live in a very, very narrow world.

No thanks.

This paragraph speaks volumes

"Many of these changes were the result of low or significantly declining enrollment or overlap with other programs. For example, over the past six years, we have awarded an average of three Classics degrees per year; less than two in Religious Studies; fewer than 10 in Entrepreneurship; about four in Urban Studies; fewer than three in European Studies; about 10 in Human Services; and fewer than four in Philosophy. History has fallen from 27 degrees six years ago to 10, English has fallen from 20 to 13 (although Creative Writing adds about another 10 degrees)."
