"In the long run it's the people with liberal arts backgrounds who end up being CEOs," says professor Anna Moro of McMaster University's DeGroote School of Business. Moro teaches in a combined business and humanities program that's featured in an Atlantic Monthly article entitled, "How the Humanities Can Train Entrepreneurs." The article describes the landscape of the American job market. According to the Association of American Colleges & Universities, "More than nine out of 10 [employers] say a job candidate's capacity for thinking and communicating clearly and solving complex problems is more important than his or her major."
At North Phoenix Prep, we proudly deliver a robust curriculum in the liberal arts to all students. In Humane Letters, our students develop their capacity to think clearly in conversation with others. They wrestle with some of the greatest thinkers in the Western tradition in their seminars. Engaging in this meaningful and humane activity is an excellent preparation for the board room, the operating room, the courtroom, or whatever path their lives take.
