With the job market the way it is, please urge your daughter to take a minor in a Non-Liberal Arts field. Something in the computer field, science, pharmaceuticals, something that will give her some skills she may be able to turn into a job. Journalism is getting hit hard, and I hate to think of her hunting for a job in a field that is declining.

With the risk of going even further out on a tangent, I hope you all realize that math and science consisted of 3-4 of the original 7 Liberal Arts (depending on how you classify logic - let's say 3.5).

The point here is that any "Liberal Arts" education *should* already consist of a healthy dose of math and science. Now, "should consist" doesn't necessarily mean "does consist", but the world is an imperfect place.
