Written by on May 4, 2013 in Career - No comments | Print this page



Many people believe that a Liberal Arts degree is basically useless on today’s job market, and although it may be true that those who pursue more specialized fields may have an easier time finding their niche, a classic education still has value in the modern world.

A degree in Liberal Arts brings a balanced perspective to the table, and many employers appreciate the opportunity to hire employees who have obtained critical thinking skills.

Technology is also changing at such a rapid pace that some degrees are outdated a year or so after the student has finished college. However, critical thinking skills are never outdated. They are also something that cannot be outsourced to workers in foreign countries.

Students who choose to pursue Liberal Arts degrees frequently have to try a bit harder in their job search than their counterparts who have received more skill-oriented educations, but it usually pays off well in the long run. Some skills are becoming obsolete as quickly as we can train people to do them.
