For quite some time now, the Bachelor of Science majors have been more heavily funded and viewed as "more important" than the Bachelor of Arts majors.
Now, the Philosophy department has been set to be terminated in four years, with the entire Humanitites department risking the same fate.
This petition is for the students of Lock Haven University to stand up against this malfeasance.
It's time for the arts to be treated with the same value as the sciences.
While the sciences are important, it's unfair that Lock Haven University doesn't view the arts as just as crucial.
The arts allow many people, myself included, to express themselves. Art is my outlet. I don't want to imagine where I would be without music, philsoophy, art etc. It's saved my life in so many ways, and I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
Art saves lives. Period. To do away with it would be doing the students at LHU a great injustice.
