The vanishing liberal arts degree

For the last few years I've been seeing articles about the vanishing liberal arts degree. Really? The liberal arts vanished a long time ago--probably before I graduated from college. My B.A. from the University of Illinois with Honors in Liberal Arts and Sciences means I had no American literature, no English literature, no art, and no math. I had one science class (chemistry). At the time, I was just relieved--especially the no math. Maybe they don't print the degree now, but there's been no liberal arts for many years.  I checked the author's age--he's 64.
