Why The Degree is Dying (and being replaced by something better)
Isaac Morehouse

As a retired professor of music, I agree with your premise in general, but there ARE indeed still degrees in which a university experience is paramount. Someone has already pointed to the medical fields, where hands on learning in a safe environment is only really viable at a school. The same is true for engineers, chemists — those fields that are highly technical, include very expensive equipment, and can be very dangerous under even the smallest of oversights. And as a musician, I must say that while the METHODS used these days in the field are antiquated, the group environment of learning how to work within a group (ensemble) setting while also having the constant one on one lessons with a master of the craft is almost impossible to found outside the academic halls.
