liberal arts

For anyone who has ever been asked the question, “What are you going to do with a liberal arts degree?” we now have a pat answer: “Why, I’m going to coach a sports team at the pro level.”

Wesleyan University graduates Bill Belichick and Eric Mangini are the head coaches for the New England Patriots and the New York/Jersey Jets respectively and graduate Jed Hoyer is co-general manager for the Boston Red Sox.

Connecticut College alumna Anita DeFrantz is a 20-year veteran of the International Olympic Committee.

Sure, the old answer of “I’ll be able to do anything because a liberal arts education teaches one to think critically” still holds true. But don’t you think the annoying father of your high school pal will have his jaw will drop a bit more with your new answer?
