Liberal Arts vs. STEM: At Purdue, There Is No Choice
Wouldn't it be great if your top tech talent could also write a great proposal? Two Purdue liberal arts programs aim to develop more STEM graduates who communicate effectively and think productively inside and outside of the box. What does a Cornerstone credential mean? Who is a Degree+ student? How do these credentials signal top talent? Learning Objectives: Recognize the Cornerstone credential on a resume and what it offers students and the other institutions developing their own programs modeled on it. Understand the value add of a student who completes two degree programs, one in STEM and one in liberal arts. Match the needs of hiring managers for roles as reflected by the credentials students earn in a more informed way.
