Is there value in traditional liberal arts education?

Absolutely. There is value in liberal arts. You might not have to do it within the walls of a University though. For example, if you are 35 and you have never had a high-paying career, taking thousands of dollars in loans to take a few years off and go to a University is not a bad thing, but it might not be the right thing at the right time. Lambda School is looking to create vocational curriculum to help you accomplish these goals on your own terms.
