Right now, in my country (Costa Rica), there are many people who consider universities as a worker factory, where you'll get a title and be able to work. They also consider studying other things besides law, engineering, education, and medicine are useless and suicidal decisions. Besides, in public universities (which are the best ranked), students get several humanities and cultural courses which are considered by some people as useless, disposable courses. What do you think? Are really careers like social sciences, natural sciences, or arts that useless for third world countries? I know physical and techonological development is important in these countries, but should universities get out of the critical and cultural knowledgment to become a place to get titles and work?
