Preparing Students for Complexity and Change – A Liberal Education

- Pp. 57-60 (4)

Christina Chow and Clement Leung

Abstract

This chapter looks at how a liberal arts and science education can prepare students for complexity and constant change. It cites examples to illustrate the importance of studying humanities. Humanities teach students critical thinking and help students to become adaptable, to learn and think independently. To prepare students for a successful career they need to develop the intellectual and emotional intelligence to cope with uncertainty and ambiguity. When students are exposed to liberal arts, they are likely to become more self-aware and self-disciplined, acquiring virtues such as empathy, compassion, resilience, and courage.
