He said that those skills don't always translate to immediate financial benefit right away, but they are life skills that are now undervalued in society. Some haven't noticed, but with the De-emphasizing of the Liberal Arts, social skills and things of the like have gone with it. In favor of the rise of technology. When considering that, the Liberal Arts can translate to great deals of money.
    Having gone to a Liberal Arts school (one of the top in the country, actually) I completely disagree. Liberal Arts schools are making a killing off of teenagers and young adults not knowing what they want to do in their lives (which is most 18 year olds). Want to major in Women's Studies? Sure! Here's your $100,000 degree in Women's Studies. Now, go get a job so you can pay back your student loans, pay rent, pay for food, pay for transportation...and while you're at it, don't forget to donate to the alumni fund!

    Don't get me wrong, I think Liberal Arts can play a role in higher education, but colleges are doing these guys and gals no favors by sending them off into the world with a skill-less degree and a shit ton of debt.

    Liberal Arts education is one of the reasons why college campus are a steaming pile of "wah wah" culture. Liberal Arts education is one of the reasons why so many undergrads have difficulty getting decent jobs in a career they actually enjoy doing and have a future in.

    Case and Point - a fraternity brother of mine majored in English Lit. Then, went to U of Md for his Masters of Arts in English Lit and Creative Writing. Still waiting on that next "great American novel...."

    He works at a liquor store. He has over $150k in "education" and he works at a liquor store.

    Now, I'll give you that my friend is kind of his own worst enemy, but I do know that his job prospects are severely limited because of his background.

    Agreed.

    Speaking of which...I haven't brewed anything since last fall. I really need to get on that. I'm thinking I may do a BIAB since I got this new 15-gal kettle from Bayou Classic.

    Maybe I'll do a RIS and let it sit until it gets cold.

    Let me put it this way, the people rioting and busting stuff up on campuses are probably not math and engineering grads. They are people who don't know how to behave.

    That sounds like a good idea. Do ten gallons and do half with bourbon soaked oak!

    There are other things he can do with a Lit degree besides be a writer. With a Masters he can teach college, though having a PhD is preferred at most four year schools. Having a penis is beneficial because there aren't that many male English professors. Editors have Lit degrees. Columnists. He can go back and get a technical writing degree which should be something like three classes.
