The Value of a College Education

12 Feb

What is the value of a college education, but to provide or contribute to the following 5 components?

• Finding and developing your strengths
• Finding and developing your skills
• Self-development and inquiry
• Certification
• Providing a community, culture, and network of learners

Classes which don’t provide or otherwise contribute to at least 3 of the 5 probably don’t belong in the curriculum.

Agree or disagree? Why? Are there other tangible or intangible values to a college education?
