"A college education not only prepares you to do something - a college education prepares you to do anything!"College can equip us for our leisure time just as much, if not more so, than it can equip us for our working lives. College educated people are able to appreciate and enjoy literature, art, music, essays, movies, and other products of the culture. Or, to put it better, the sort of appreciation and enjoyment that they have is deeper because of their education.

We live in a democracy, the success of which requires that each of us participates actively and intelligently in the democratic institutions. Such participation includes not simply voting, but critically examining the candidatesí positions, speaking out as an advocate for policy change, perhaps even serving in a leadership role on a governmental body. Moreover, it requires being critical of the institutions themselves, and seeing what needs changing and why. The appreciation of history, the ability to formulate a persuasive argument, an analytic skill with budgets and statistics and polling data - these are all skills you get as a college educated person and they are skills necessary for successful participation as a citizen in a democracy.

The developments in technology and the advances in science are an ever-present, and ever-more-important part of our lives. The growing presence of medications in the treatment of psychological maladies, the possibilities opened up by study and manipulation of DNA, and the prospects for artificial intelligence (just to name a few) are developments that require an intelligent response. Which of the many possibilities opened up to us by science should be pursued? How reliable is DNA testing? Should we treat depression with a drug or with traditional therapy? College graduates are well-positioned to answer these questions because they know some science, and can distinguish quackery from good scientific practice.

This last point applies not simply to the advances in science and technology, but to the information that comes to us via the media. We need to be able to distinguish the foolish fad from the important trend; we need to be able to determine which news outlets are reliable and which are overly biased; we need to be able to figure out where to turn for information and how to navigate between the twin vices of gullibility and skepticism. During your college education you will spend a significant amount of time doing research and evaluating sources. Upon completing college, you will be better situated to be intelligent consumers of information.

Finally, a college education equips people with the tools for self-examination that renders them able to make informed and intelligent choices about the direction of their own lives. College may equip you for a career, but you have to decide which career to pursue, and how to balance the competing demands of work and family. ... Should you work for (or buy the products of) a company that exploits child laborers? Should you buy your groceries from a large national chain or from the local, but perhaps more expensive, market? At what point should you put a moral principle ahead of economic interest? These are decisions that we all must make; if we donít, someone else will make them for us. And by providing the experience and guidance at thinking through these sorts of questions a college education will turn you into a reflective, morally mature person.

I would argue that the benefits of a college education that I just listed are actually more valuable than the fact that you can get a good job with a college diploma. The reason that college degrees translate into high-end salaries and good jobs has more to do with the skills one acquires in college than with the discipline-specific knowledge of the individual courses. No one is going to give you a better job because of your knowledge of Shakespeare or Plato or the Napoleonic Wars. But students who are successful in their English, Philosophy, and History classes are independent and creative thinkers who can write and speak clearly, who can juggle many responsibilities, who can research a project, and who can take steps to educate themselves.

Even when it comes to the more vocationally-related majors like nursing or business or education or biology, it is sure to be the case that the knowledge you will need in your job will far outstrip what you will learn in your college classes. This is not a failing of the college classes, it is just a fact that specific industries and jobs require highly specific knowledge. It is also a fact that what you need to know to be an accountant or a teacher or a nurse or a biologist will change in response to advances in those fields. One of the goals of a college education is to give you the general knowledge into which you can fit the more specific knowledge required by your particular job. And, more importantly, a college education will give you the ability to teach yourself, so that when you need a new job skill, youíll be prepared.

When you get a job, the employer very likely will train you to do whatever it is that needs to be done. Large corporations have entire human resources departments and internal ďuniversitiesĒ the sole purpose of which is to train the new employees to perform the necessary tasks. The Widget Corporation will understand if you canít come in on the first day of the job and start making the widgets; their trainers will show you how to do that. But what they wonít show you is how to write clearly, how to organize your time, how to give a presentation to the Board of Directors, how to ask questions, and how to make decisions. What an employer wants above all is an employee who can think, and that is what they expect from people with a college education. Once you understand that it is these more generally intellectual skills which employers desire, youíll realize that they can be acquired in just about any major. Selected text from an article written by: Andrew P. Mills, an assistant professor of philosophy at Otterbein College.

Colleges and Universities in the United States
Select a college that offers the degree and programs that will help ensure your success in your chosen career. Be sure your school is accredited.

    Accreditation in the United States
    The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. There are regional and national accrediting agencies, recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education, as reliable authorities concerning the quality of education or training offered by the institutions of higher education or higher education programs they accredit.

    Without accreditation by a nationally recognized accredited organization, a school is not eligible to participate in government student assistance programs. This means as a student, you will not be eligible for federal grant or loan money. Most employers who offer tuition assistance will not reimburse your tuition if you attend a school that is not accredited. If you intend to transfer credits from one school to another, you will only be able to do so if you attended an accredited school.

    Degrees and Programs
    Depending on the college or university, there are many types of degrees offered. Literally, hundreds of degrees and programs are offered in our many colleges and universities. Take the time to review the Degree objectives and the courses that you will study. Your College or University may offer many different degrees - including:
