Despite the big push for STEM majors and career-focused skills in recent years, the liberal arts seem to be making a resurgence. Liberal arts degree programs in 2016 ranked No. 1 for most completions as well as for the biggest increase in completions, higher ed consulting firm Gray Associates found in a recent analysis of IPEDS preliminary data. Liberal arts and sciences associate degrees led all 1,400-plus IPEDS Classification of Instructional programs with 251,393 completions. Among academic program groups, postbaccalaureate certificates in liberal arts and sciences, general studies and humanities had the biggest growth—56 percent (see chart).
