***  One Paragraph Pitch:

 

From Xavier Gray:

 

OEDb (Open Education Database) is home to one of the largest collections of higher education resources available online. It has a degree section that has detailed information about various online degrees, an online schools page that allows users to filter thousands of online programs to find the right one. The scope of courses liberal arts majors take allows them to understand the historical and political context that can help students better understand the mindset of a certain population. Liberal arts degrees provide a context for subjects and learning that other degrees can’t necessarily provide. In fact, their versatility is what makes liberal arts graduates marketable to prospective employers — they have been exposed to a variety of subjects, have experience in quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and are trained to make connections in and understand the context of several different situations.
