Marcia, this is a fascinating topic. I first entered university at the age of 27, and the liberal arts degree I earned (technically, I majored in English but took lots of other courses, such as philosophy, sociology, etc.) opened my mind to all sorts of ideas that a more technically oriented degree would not have.

Also, I believe that following one's interests is so important. In her book "The Long Game," Dorie Clark has a chapter titled something like "Optimize for Interesting." Following your interests is a great way to ensure that you'll enjoy your work, and that enjoyment is a key element of success.

So let's hear it for useless pursuits!
