It is funny you posted this. I was having some memory relapse about my college experience. A Liberal Art major in a technical college. Long story. I was told by a blue-eyed Buddhist monk back when I was actually studying in a liberal art university (previous college) that I should learn knowledge for myself. If that's the case, it really didn't matter which college I go to. In this college, all these "science" majors have no clues about the field of humanity. There was this silly polemics about liberal art studies aren't real science. Therefore, there are no right answers to anything. As you can see, a lot of these students lack a sense of ability to judge and to evaluate a situation that involves the humanity (moralities, religions, wars, and human suffering).
All I can say is that you should only major in the liberal art studies if you are on a path. A path to enlightenment. That you yourself have a specific agenda, a sense of mission. That you yourself have certain life issues that needed to be resolved. Anything else is secondary. If you want to major in the liberal art studies because you want to be well rounded, this is not for you. Just because you can appear educated in a social gathering or a party because you can converse in all subject matters, that does not make you to become enlightened. Take up the liberal art studies as if the fate of the humanity is in your hands. Personally, I have always felt this way through and through.edit on 27-4-2012 by ChiForce because: (no reason given)

A Liberal Arts grad knows full well how a society or target market will be, and better still, is fully capable of understanding the product well within a short time, by simply reading up on that product, which is singular, usually does not take up the entire range of engineering field to comprehend.
Scientists, doctors, engineers, etc, do have a function in societies. And so does Liberal Arts grads. Without them, we are no more than mindless machines without anyone looking at the bigger picture. A good and progressive company needs both kinds within the board - hands and intellect, or it will only sink eventually.
