Not at all. A number of groups from the creative arts and entertainment sectors are a part of our Coalition. We always want to make the point that a policy focus on “STEM” isn’t really just about four rigid subjects, it’s about ensuring that students have the skills they need to succeed in the modern world. Arts and humanities are certainly a part of that equation.

Never ... you can actually accentuate your STEM background with minors in the arts & humanities.

Think of a web designer ... sure, a designer needs strong computer (STEM) skills, but if he/she is well-versed on the aesthetics of design which one would pick up in the arts & humanities world, a true impression can be made.

Think of Steve Jobs and the apple products. Per his biography, he had actually taken arts classes which influenced his desire for a clean design.
