Comment: Liberal Arts versus Vocational training (Score 5, Insightful) 225

by Pro777 (#32034828) Attached to: Students Flock To GMU For a Degree In Video Game Design

I'm disappointed to see an institution with as good a reputation as GMU creating what is ostensibly a vocational training program. Programs such as this prepare students for one and only one role in a specialized industry, instead of preparing them with a more well rounded education. Mores the pity too. I guess GMU wants to compete head to head with schools that advertise on G4.
