We are on another episode of summer vacation, so we’re replaying an episode from the Archives that’s just the thing for parents who are about to send their kids off to college. It’s another conversation that fits into our recurring series titled “A User’s Guide to Higher Education.”
We’re joined by our friend and Augustana colleague Mike Edmondson. Mike has a PhD in History (so, obviously, he’s a classy guy) from Temple University. He’s been on Historically Thinking before, in Episode 8 talking about his book Marketing Your Value: 9 Steps to Navigate Your Career. Now he returns to discuss a new and related title that’s just been published, Major in Happiness: Debunking the College Major Fallacies. There are a lot of those fallacies, but we don’t talk about many of them. Instead, we discuss the expectations of parents, and, quite frankly, take them to the woodshed. In a gentle, helpful, yet challenging way. We hope.
Thanks for listening!
