According to Michael Roth, it doesn't matter what you study in college, but how you study it. In his new book, the Wesleyan University president defends the traditional liberal education, which is falling out of favor as students increasingly pursue coursework they think will make them more attractive to employers. Roth joins us to talk about his new book, "Beyond the University: Why Liberal Education Matters," and to discuss student debt and the rise of online courses.

Guests:

Michael Roth, president of Wesleyan University, former president of California College of the Arts and author of "Beyond the University: Why Liberal Education Matters"
