    I don’t think you can lump vocational degrees, like mine in chemical engineering, in with liberal arts degrees. Virtually every class I took in college is something I used on the job later. I didn’t have history or English classes, I had math, chemistry, physics and engineering courses. Its more like learning to be a plumber but it pays slightly better. So college was more of an apprenticeship for engineering students. If you remove all the vocational majors from the discussion(nursing, architecture, engineering, etc.) then I think you summed it up pretty well. There is the college that trains you for a specific job, that’s still pretty worthwhile, and there is the general liberal arts college, that’s becoming more and more questionable. Thought provoking post, I think you have good insight on where things are heading.
