What’s University Good For?

According to Virginia Postrel: “The skills that still matter are the habits of mind I honed in the classroom.”

how to analyze texts carefully, how to craft and evaluate arguments, and how to apply microeconomic reasoning, along with basic literacy in accounting and statistics

Spot on. If you are afraid of majoring in something like art history, read the whole thing.
