Well, from the article, it doesn't seem like a "degree" will get you much anyway. If you want a "degree" in the arts, spend your money on a liberal arts school (nearly all of which now* offer the same kinds of courses as are offered at "arts" colleges) and also become educated in things like literature, history, economics, and business. Then your "degree" might also be worth something. *Until the 40's, very few colleges offered courses, much less degrees, in the arts. However, that's no longer the case, and almost all liberal arts colleges offer degrees in the fine and performing arts.
