Georgetown Professor and Director of the Center for Jewish Civilization Jacques Berlinerblau talks about what the college experience is like today—an experience which is radically different from the one that parents of high school seniors might be familiar with. Lingering on the crisis of professorial employment, the demise of the humanities, and the collapse of undergraduate teaching, Berlinerblau focuses on what Jewish parents need to know about America’s colleges and universities beyond the hype and headlines. Those currently undergoing the application process, or those simply interested in the state of American higher education, will find themselves both entertained and concerned.
