Mr. Hoppe, I think you define the liberal arts too narrowly. My undergraduate majors in math and physics from a small liberal arts college taught me critical thinking, analysis, and logical skills. Paired with extensive courses in the humanities, I learned to express myself, listen to others, and understand the relationship of science to society. Looking the other direction, an English major working in journalism in 21st century should have a solid understanding of math and statistics given how much data analysis and understanding is often needed for stories about politics or medicine.
I think the best educations are as broad and well rounded as possible with the minimum specialization required.
