The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program at UNCG has started a new blog! The online bachelor degree completion program hopes to create a place for student discourse outside Blackboard. UNCG online education is going social.
Jay Parr, the BLS program director summed up the reason for the effort, “Sometimes the best discussion in class happens outside in the hallway afterward. Why should online students miss out on that?”
The first blog post is an intriguing look at the question many students ask, What good is liberal studies? You might be surprised by what some business leaders are saying about the value of liberal studies.
