Online Liberal Arts Bachelor’s Degree – Kevin Foskin

Hi, I’m Kevin Foskin. I’m the director of the interdisciplinary
liberal arts program up here at CSU, and I’m also the director of the online degree program
that we offer as well in interdisciplinary liberal arts. A bachelor’s degree in liberal arts I think
is very important for a number of reasons. The first reason being that it’s going to
give you the credentials that you need to move on in your career. As we’re moving within the twenty-first century,
I think that the very nature of the work place is beginning to change, and I think that the
kinds of tasks in jobs that we’re faced with are multidimensional. We focus on what we see as the key liberal
arts skills. One needs to know how to write well. One needs to know how to speak productively
in front of people. One needs to know how to analyze and assess
arguments. We learn less about one thing in particular,
and we learn more about a lot of things. Knowing more about a lot of things is naturally
going to make us a bit more versatile. Research is a very important component in
terms of creating the basis for a dynamic education. We give them the tools. We teach them how to be researchers. I think that I can relate to my online students,
because I was pretty much in their shoes. I was a CSU student that had not gone to college
until I was 27 years old. It allowed myself to mature until the point
to where I was ready to return, I knew what I wanted to do. It’s the opportunity to return to college
in a way and at speed which was appropriate to me at age 27 given all of my other responsibilities. I’m always available, I always answer my
own emails. I’m more than happy to talk about whatever
it is that you need to make your decision.
