The major questions today are “does liberal arts education better prepare you for a career than a regular institution?” or “is liberal arts education a negative because it makes you learn about more than just what you’re doing in the future?” Liberal arts education is not only good for your career but also for you as a person and knowing more than just what you’re going to get paid for. Liberal arts education provides you with the basic skills needed to be a successful critical thinker. “During the Renaissance, the term was interpreted more broadly to mean all of those studies that impart a general, as opposed to be vocational or specialized education. These correspond rather closely to the interpretation used in most undergraduate colleges today, although the curriculum of the latter is more flexible than that of the Renaissance University.” (The Columbia Encyclopedia).

In “Can You Be Educated from a Distance”, James Barszvz begins to argue the internet-based instruction with a statistic. He points out that 34 percent and 90 percent of American colleges and larger schools started to offer “distance learning” (DL), respectively. He gives an example that University of Phoenix, which is the largest private university, offers degrees based on online instruction (15:1). He talks about the format of DL and notes that face-to-face communication is limited for students and instructors (16:1). He believes that the reason students take online courses is they think it is convenient.

Academically successful students will have more employment opportunities than those with less education. Thus, academic success may mean the difference between working at a job merely “because it pays the rent” and working at a job that one enjoys (Rentner & Kober, 2001, p. 15). Research also shows that people who are academically successful • are more stable in their employment; • are more likely to have health insurance; • are less dependent on public assistance; • are less likely to engage in criminal activity; • are more active as citizens and charitable volunteers; and • are more healthy (National Alliance of Business, Inc., 1998). According to Ruby Payne in her book , A Framework for Understanding Poverty, low achievement can be closely correlated with low socioeconomic status. Poverty can be related to academic achievement in the United States.

But that’s not it when it comes to savings, savings are passed on through the advantages we spoke of earlier you will save money on gas, parking, bus or rail passes, and some classes offer access to e-textbooks that may cost less than traditional textbooks. All of these advantages lead to one thing and that’s more money being kept in your pocket and who among us can say that they don’t want to save more money. Now on the other hand you have your drawbacks which can be significant and really depend on the type of learner that you are and how familiar you are with technology. The interaction you have with your instructor can be very limited.
Online and traditional educations are ways that people can receive a good education. Whichever educational path students chose they will have a good chance of getting a good education, and also a better paying job from either one. Both schools offer the same educational goals and it then comes down to the student’s choice. Getting a better education means that people are able to afford themselves better job opportunities. In today’s world you almost need a college education for most jobs offered on- the- job market.

Students are provided with opportunities to access education in numerous ways. The two most popular ways in which education can be attained is through a traditional manner known as classroom education and a network-based manner known as online education.

Although online education and classroom education are both followed through similar standard, classroom education is more ideal in terms of a “better” education than online education. Critics who support online education over classroom education often believe that both types of education provide students with an equivalent level of education, and therefore, should give students equal recognition.
