1. I hope not.

I went to an all women's liberal arts college in rural Virginia.

Over four years, I completed these courses: German, Italian, Spanish, European Civilization, Photography, Modern Dance, Logic, Theater History, D.H. Lawrence, Creative Writing, Chemistry, Piano, Clarinet, in addition to majoring in Music.

Most importantly, I learned to be prepared to go to class and once there, how to be a critical thinker and to participate actively.

Liberal arts is more than learning about the past. It's about how to use what you've learned whether for pedestrian endeavors or an important purpose.
