  • Abstract

A liberal arts education has for centuries been seen both as the pinnacle of education and the bedrock on which is founded good citizenship and exemplary leadership. In recent times, the liberal arts and the sciences have been seen as being in opposition, with educational institutions, governments, and students feeling forced to choose between them. But in our increasingly data-driven yet interconnected world, we believe that a new conception of the liberal arts is needed, one which blends the quantitative and analytical skills of a scientific education with the qualitative and communicative skills of a traditional liberal arts education. The ideal blend of these skills is to be found in training in applied mathematics.
