What Will a Liberal Arts Education Look Like in 50 Years?

At this year's Aspen Ideas Festival, we asked a group of academics within some of America's top universities to weigh in on the fate of higher education. "We won't have liberal arts and sciences at all 50 years from now unless we really understand how to save what's good, but reinvent what's new and needed," says Harvard University education professor Howard Gardner. Other panelists include Sebastian Thrun, Elisa New, Drew Faust, Erika Christakis, and Nicholas Dirks.

The Big Question is a series inspired by The Atlantic's back-page feature.
