A set of links created in February 2008 from a Google search. I provided this to a senior-level course in which several students wanted to do research on the social and career value of their own degrees.

  • 2001 report by SSHRC (social sciences and humanites research council)
  • Value added: humanities and social sciences degrees. Evidence supports long-term employment success
  • AACU Forum on Twenty-first Century Liberal Arts Education Practice
  • Science isn’t sexy enough: Universities need to figure out how to combine the appeal of arts studies with a practical basis in sciences if Canada is going to have a bright economic future
