thanks! that really cleared it up. are htere any popular schools still out there that are considered vocational?
The term "liberal arts college" means a school that only has an undergraduate program. As opposed to a university which has a liberal arts program for undergraduates in addition to other divisions such as graduate schools, law school, med school, research contracting divisions, hospital divisions, etc
As a practical matter, the key thing to note is that a "liberal arts college" means a smaller school that focuses exclusively on undergraduate education.
