Parks, Recreation, Leisure, and Fitness Studies

Louis Menand writes in this week’s New Yorker that 22 percent of bachelor’s degrees are awarded in business. Eight percent are in education, five percent in health professions. Says Menand:

By contrast, fewer than four percent of college graduates major in English, and only two percent major in history. There are more bachelor’s degrees awarded every year in Parks, Recreation, Leisure, and Fitness Studies than in all foreign languages combined.

What do we want from college and how is that changing?
