Facing an incredibly sharp fall in enrolment, small institutions have chosen to share courses and educational programs combining groups of their students, improving costs and motivating applicants for admission.
For example, the Michigan School of Humanities has joined forces with Michigan State University so that students majoring in history or English literature can now study supply chain management simultaneously. In this way, liberal arts colleges increase their attractiveness by adding programs focused on practical career building and the job market.
This approach also enables professionals and teachers of humanities to share their knowledge with the world's leading universities without leaving their home campus. Furthermore, for integrated learning, online tools are used, for example, virtual spaces for online classes, shared access to educational courses, etc. Thanks to this, students gain more freedom in choosing and studying certain subjects, and the university gets more students and experienced teachers and can save on other resources.
