Liberal arts majors are sometimes disparaged because


the parents think that they are useless for job training, and they want their youngster educated in "hard sciences" like STEM or business.
But, my son received an excellent education by double majoring in English/Religion at CU. He was fascinated by those topics, so his Dad and I let him choose the major. When he graduated, employers were looking for the Bachelor's Degree and his ability at critical thinking and reasoning skills.
He now works in upper management for Google in the tech sector in northern California and has been very successful, both financially and career-wise. He's been able to afford a beautiful home for his wife and kids in the Bay Area, which isn't easy. Liberal arts majors can be very useful and very relevant.
