The Value of a Liberal Arts Degree
When Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, unveiled the iPad 2, he declared, “It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough—it’s technology married with liberal arts... that yields us the result that makes our heart sing.”
Individuals who choose to study the liberal arts recognize that we live in a tremendously dynamic world. Economies and cultures are subject to changes that no one can foresee. Amidst this change, one thing is certain—if you prepare to fit into society as it is today, you will be unprepared for society as it will be tomorrow.
