That being said, you should also include Criminal Law — majority of those that sign up for the course are simply in it for what they feel they need to get the Mall Security job instead of following through into Law School. Still making enough money to not blog. Funny article though — most of these are pre-something majors though. Honestly, who goes through undergrad expecting to do something real after college nowadays?
I would say Social Work is the most expensive useless degree. Just go to community college. And the worst are the women who then go back and get their masters in social work. Alright, clever idea to make a list; but you should revise. Anything in the liberal arts field has no job placement but to teach or to work at a museum. Uh, they do very well because they all wind up getting either into business or law; but either way they HAVE to go to graduate school.
English lit majors have many applications, and they can not only teach but they usually wind up in some realm of Journalism, not just mere blogs. Most profitable being Chinese and Business. Film majors have little to no shot to making it. Aviation is hot right now, Western Michigan University is the place to be, Dubai has a 1 Mil signing bonus for pilots.
Anyone who buys this garbage is a moron. Oh, and I majored in Philosophy. I go to Parsons a nd screw you. Secondly, a lot of companies just want to see that you had the commitment to stick with something for 4 years 5 years in some cases. Some of the more general degrees will actually allow you some flexibility in what you do compared to a focused degree. Find something you like, find a way to get into it, sell yourself effectively in an interview and all will turn out well. Unlike other majors that result in BA degrees, with a BSE, you can be essentially assured a well-paying job, right out of college.
If you want to be nearly guaranteed a job, focus on nanotech! I major in Philosophy and Law and minor in Political Science. My studies in Philosophy have changed how I think about the world and of my life. It also makes me consider that things are not as simple as they seem.
With a text in philosophy, I have to read it more than once to get the whole meaning — to see the bigger picture, and Law and Political Science require that you zoom out and see the panoramic view. No degree can guarantee that you land the best paying job, but it can help. A major is a stepping stone to that degree. No matter what, education changes your perspective on life. I have one more year of college left, but I can say with certainty that I am not the same person I was in Ignorance can hurt you or others around you.
Bliss cannot be found in pain, unless one can see through that ignorance, and thereby see through the pain, to do something good. Any knowledge is good if it improves a person to see mistakes and to want to do something to improve upon life. My girlfriend majored in religion.
Hey comm majors… can you say do you want fries with that? The job market is literally filled to the brim with people that work in actual communications. What really pissed me off in college were the liberal arts and business majors complaining that they had to write papers… They had to do research and then write a little paper on what they found in a book… Are you for real??
A 10 page paper?? No I had to write a 10 page paper and make it do something. Oh and this was in another language… yeah no sympathy for people that bitch about writing papers….
So basically anyone not majoring in business is out of a job and wasting their time? Wow, what a depressing world if that is the only way to survive. Also, I dont see how you can include education majors, bz, unless schools suddenly stopped hiring teachers.
I should say business and science. Apparently according to most people here, thats all you can possibly do to stay afloat. Do what you love and nothing less. Go ahead make fun of the creatives. If you seriously care about what your doing then thats all that counts. Fine Art- you take all of the computer classes. Graduate, then get a high-starting wage job as a Flash Designer, and Laugh at all of your unemployed, economic majoring buddies who are unemployed!
Music Therapy has applications with autistic children. It can be used to stimulate lower functioning children into speaking. But of course, that also goes with psychology, behaviour study, and ability to teach. These are just four professional orginaizations around the world that would be very helpful in conveying the true ideals of music therapy to you. Let me just make mention of the applications of this type of therapy: But please really research this stuff before you pass judgment, one day you very well may fall into one of thoes catagories and need a good dose of music therapy for your mind, body and soul.
The fact that you think music therapy is just setting mood music in the old folks home is absolutely rediculous. Music therapists go through intense training in school, a 6 month internship, and then take an exam to become board certified. Music therapy is one of the growing jobs out there unlike your common sit behind a desk jobs that are fizzling. Music therapists are actually helping people.
Music therapy is a scientific, research based practice that is constantly in partnership with other modalities not for our own benefit but to help benefit the individuals that we work with. Unless you have the credentials of a music therapist DO NOT say that you are one because you can play music. You are commiting a huge wrong to society. Quit writing this kind of trash.
The other majors you listed also have more promise than you obviously have any clue about. Once again, Quit writing this trash. More sociology than actual law and procedures. For those with higher pursuits in mind, you see….
I am going to have to add a major in Business in there — No, not any of the specialty ones like Business Accounting, or Business Finance etc — Just plain Business — Talk about getting you no where! What a waste of my time! You can get a graduate degree in landscape architecture with any undergrad degree thank god and the pay is exceptionally good. I disagree with your maligning of Latin and Philosophy. Without the latin and Greek! I would never have undertood tghe workings of grammar — and, thus, of the human brain.
Philosophy, on the other hand, helped understanding how strangely the mind and reality are sometimes dis-related must be through lack of philosophy. Although we must adnmit: There are so many things you can do with an English degree! You can become a teacher, a professor, an editor, you can work for somewhere like spark or cliff notes, you can work for a text book company, you can write manuals….
All of these degrees are worthless. I spent 2 years in school to get one degree: Not a bad return on 2 years of work. I have buddy who majored in Community and Regional Development. Spent a whole year trying to get a job, so he decided to go back to school and get his masters… in Community and Regional Development.
He still gets blank stares when he tells people he has a masters in CRD. I published a response to this post, including career planning links for people in those majors and other such informative content. At least people with these majors went to college and made something of themselves …. Michael Perceval has it right. This is mostly to say that their work-force are educated above the high school level.
Do what you want, if you like dance, be a dance major, freedom means to right to chose, unaffected by forum flamers. Do your research first, you have absolutely no idea what music therapy is about. Its not teaching you how to play background music for the OAPs but is about helping people, particularly with mental conditions through participation in music.
I would love for someone to show me the statistics of unemployed lawyers vs. A lot of them might be tied to advertisements and commercials though…. Biology im a bio major, going on to pharmacy school…when i get out of there, i get six figures! In fairness it all depends on how good at it you are. You do a degree in a shit college and its a waste tbh. Point is if I get a im gonna be earning going on averages the same as someone without a degree, and im in Cardiff Uni, a business school that outranks both Oxford and Cambridge on graduate earning.
Too many people do a degree because thats whats seen as the norm. Point is, you gotta do well at it and know how to use it…………………. Oh and i may end up doing a masters in com, stop making me 2nd guess myself!!!!!!! While Latin is a completely worthless major in itself, it will get you immediately hired in some major public school districts that started teaching AP Latin which for reasons that completely elude me has recently become popular in education again.
Take note future college grads — a liberal arts degree leads to one of three things — teaching, law school, a cubicle, or worst of all an equally worthless PhD. I know, I majored in English. Art History and Philosophy is something that the only job you can get once you obtain your degree is to become an art history or philosophy teacher.
My BA in Sociology provided me with the unique ability and insight to be aware of just how much my proletariat ass suffers at their hands on the daily…and yes, I am being sarcastic…just a little bit. What about a degree in pharmacy? Six to seven years in college to end up counting pills and working nights and weekends at Walgreens. I want to work in an art museum. So art history is far from useless in my case. But I knew that from the start.
By the way, working in a museum is a great career. It allows you to work in a culturally rich setting and to work somewhere that serves a community. Smaller museums may have a dozen or so employees, larger ones can have a few hundred. There are directors, curators, registrars, exhibition planners, conservators, department of education jobs, archivists, the list goes on. You can even become a private consultant for the very rich people who want to know what they should buy for their private art collections.
So, if you love art, go for it, and with some perseverence, you should be able to find a great job. Man you hit this one on the head. I tell people every day to make every second of college count and they always come back with lame excuses of following your dreams. Like the avg undergrad can even follow a syllabus much less follow their dreams or know what there dream is. Ask the local chick at Starbucks majoring in Eng.
She doesnt know squat about even eng. African American Studies — haha wow so what can you do with this one besides chronicle years of injustice in America. Womens Studies — Wow so you hate men? So how will you benefit our comapny if we hire you? Psychology — Half the workers at Starbucks and Ikea have this one.
My roomate had this and she looked as though she was suicidal last time she came home from a special ed assignment. Classics — No one cares or even has heard of Plutarch or Polybius at work.
They are to busy surfing porn and dating co workers. Not once did anyone ask me about anything related to the classics. And no one gives a shit about latin and greek word roots. Sociology — Heres a good one for you all. I dont know any sociology majors and the University I went to gave them the crappiest building as well. This should tell you something. ALtin American Studies - 7. Native American Studies I add a few every college has a slew of these that you jsut know will get you into the unemployment line ASAP.
All of my friends who have graduated, despite their degrees, have had an extremely difficult time finding jobs. And they are all engineering, psychology, photography, and journalism majors. A major is useless unless the person who earns it is willing to work very hard to get what they want. Wait until the summer of your senior year comes around and your forced to move back in with your parents.
Employers are going to find it funny that you spent 4 yrs of your life studying English Lit. People need to major in areas that are in demand. Society needs doctors, engineers, comp. We have way too many Eng. What we dont need is 10, more psych grads. You will see asha when you graduate what the eng.
I like how everyone gets all offended by this. There are going to be slacker dead beats and successful millionaires to come out of just about any sort of major. I got one in , and I wound up working at gas stations for 10 years! They hire bums and homeless people to work at gas stations — the same thing I went to Jr. College for 2 years!
What a useless degree. Not once did an employer ever even ask me to show it to them — much less put it on the wall anywhere. You can be sucessful with basically any major. No one forced you into it. No one said it was going to be easy. So even if an employer never asked for your diploma you should just feel proud of yourself for having gone to school because it is something that not everyone can and want to do.
Is it not the case in America? I made a living as a pastor in two different denominations and a drug abuse program administrator in another. In a pure religious studies program, the only way you can make it is to get a Ph. Why, you are dead right on philosophy. It really is quite a good subject to take up if you want to learn which jobs you do not want to do.
By the way, Albert Schweitzer did take courses in philosophy but foremost he was a physician. While what you say is very true in most cases, it is ultimately about a persons ambitions. Being educated is all about dispersing the knowledge to others. People are going to be successful if they work hard, study and learn no matter what their majors are. The reason people who go to college do well—regardless of major and school—is because they have ambition and determination.
They will get up in the morning and take the bus to school and study when other friends are going out. These habits translate into the real world too.
You pretty much know right away whether someone wants to work towards their goals or is just along for the ride. I have a girlfriend who is going to grad school for an MBA and is barely functionally literate. She graduated with a business degree because she took all of the easiest courses with all lowest, dumbest easy grading teachers. The sad thing is that in order to get a quality education, you have to pay tip-top dollar in order to go to schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the like.
Most other Universities are just glorified high schools. I think the biggest problem in college is that you are no longer rewarded for hard work, studying and learning. Its like you are buying the degree like you would buy a car or house. We need to pay more attention to learning and hard-work. I have to agree with most of these except a few.
My friend was a film major, with a minor in economics, and now he works as a cameraman at an independent film studio. The other is literature, I am an English major, with a minor in Geography, and I have to agree that a degree in just literature is pretty useless on its own. But, I had to take one semester of English literature both American and British With an full degree in English like I have you can find a job anywhere, currently I write articles for newspapers, I could easily become a screenwriter with the major I have.
The two most useless majors however are, Religion and Political Science. He should have added Psychology. Every freshman seems to major in psychology. A lot of the time it is, but not always. A degree is what you make it and I would be very careful about dismissing them on the basis of classification or subject.
Film actually goes under the multimedia degree section and while Hollywood is less likely you can still and a job if you know your stuff on TV programs and the like. Editors, cinematography, etc all deal with film and are needed in.
A in CHinese Studies lol im graduating this summer hahahahahhahahah im fed up with my four years of college, completely pointlesssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. Man, none of you can take a joke. Luckily I am a Human Biology major and going to medical school next year and am actually going to make something of myself.
Completely agree because gays are also human and we must respect their choice. Men love big guns, wars and different kinds of violence. Men are not tactful. Not all of us know the tactful rules of social behavior, but some are very tactful. What is really scary is that people get Phds in Femenist studies, psychology and many more of the above majors and then are shocked and think it is some social injustice when they are over educated and dead broke.
I was a communications major. Became a technical writer….. I chose communications because it was easy and only units…. What some may think is useless others find a deep intellectual interest. You are NOT entitled for a job based on school. I think this person is useless though. My dad did me a big favor after my first 2 years of college were spent boozing and screwing. He cut me off. I realized I had to finish and started paying my own bills and went to school full time and working 40 hours a week no loans, state school.
To give you an idea of the worth of that degree, they were laying off people and not hiring in the 80s when I got this damn degree. I on the agenda c trick to set up a guerilla ad for tic tacs for a ready project. What i considering to do is affix or someway spot oversized tic tac leaves their logo on a leafless tree during the winter times on a elaborate pavement conceivably somewhere like chicago where all is covered in snow, including the trees.
All about the LSAT. A few months ago I got a definitely unerring schmelke cue at get because the guy who owns the merge way I tolerant of to bolt at knows a guy who owns a cue shop. Everything else on the list is pretty fucking worthless, though. Then you can try to get somewhere doing what you love. You are so totally right. I have just completed a bachelors in literature and i have no fucking idea what i can do with it.
The dude taught most of my frigging classes, and always brought a lot of baggage into the classroom. I see a lot of salary amounts here. My chosen career path may yield a low salary but at least I love what I do and how many people can say that?
These days it seems like a BA or BS in any major, except for maybe prelaw, premed, engineering, computer science or anything already very specialized is a dime a dozen anyway. And even in those you still need your Masters, law degree, med degree… I can take a joke however, and this list made me chuckle. Actually, with an English degree you can get a great job in editing scientific information for investors.
I know a girl that is double majoring in Dance and Womens Studies, and a minor in French. I would probably choose the research paper writing service to http: Affiliate Marketing is a performance based sales technique used by companies to expand their reach into the internet at low costs. This commission based program allows affiliate marketers to place ads on their websites or other advertising efforts such as email distribution in exchange for payment of a small commission when a sale results.
After their missions they return to actually attend college or vocational training and do not attend ministry studies for a degree. Many of these seem correct. Communications and Journalism majors often go on to be anchorpeople on Good Morning America or the Early Show, or creating and selling ads to multi-billion dollar companies, or writing columns in the New York Times.
Did you fail at that one, too? And maybe you should take classes in Communications, because you seem pretty bad at understanding others and connecting people….
To paraphrase one of my favorite writers, Florence King, a masters degree in English equips a person for exactly one thing: As for the rest of it, if marrying someone with money is a goal, well not bad choices.
I knew Communications was gonna be on here. Alright genius — music therapists work primarily with children — most childrens hospitals have in-house music therapists, and a lot of them go off into private practice. I just thought you should know this, since you clearly have no idea what a music therapist actually is. Theology in psychology of course, theorizing and being able to analyze possible causes, cures, for so far uncureable diseases, bi-polar, where the cause is uncertain along with others.
Religion…mindfulness in Buddhism also prevalent in many Eastern religions along with the theologies of many Western thinkers as well is very helpful. There is no point in taking 45, dollars a year and throwing it out to pursue a career in which no one will ever ask to see your degree. English by itself is a less then spectacular degree. However a good amount of aspiring lawyers major in it before moving on to law school.
I definitely disagree some facets of this list. Philosophy and Latin are both popular undergraduate degrees taken in preparation for Law School. You want the path to career success for the recent college graduate?
It has almost nothing to do with your major. Plenty of employers will hire you fresh out of college, but rarely based on what you know. Unless you majored in nursing, accounting, certain engineering disciplines, or certain natural sciences such as biology or chemistry, nobody cares what you know.
Major in whatever interests you. Work hard and compile a shiny, polished academic resume, but harbor no illusions that it will ensure that first, big-ticket job offer. Google and Wikipedia do not count ; 3 Write something that somebody else might actually want to read; and 4 Speak in front of a group.
You can get these skills in a variety of majors. If you graduate without at least two of them, you have wasted your time. If none sound interesting or fun, what in the world are you doing in college? Then, after graduation, go get whatever job you can find. So, you hear about Music Therapy, look up the definition and — based on your clearly ignorant take of that definition — you decide it is useless.
Not anyone can be a music therapist. You need to go through a good program and pass the AMTA test. You learn how to use music professionally to promote a healthy change in an individual. Playing music for the patient is a very very small part of music therapy.
And people DO hire music therapist in hospitols and schools and care centers accross the nation and world-wide. Honestly, do some research! People with special needs were able to progress further than any professional expected of them because of applied music therapy. Elderly people learned to enjoy the last few years of their lives. Cancer patients found strength in music therapy to get through the hard time and yes, there was science behind that, too.
I am a college professor and I laughed like a hyena. But then again, I can afford to laugh, what with the tenured job and all. Just want to let you know I majored in Latin, and graduated from college with a C average. I wanted to teach.
It took me fifteen years to get out of the clutches of the married with children and mortgage thing that had taken over my brain, and I went back to grad school. Moral of the story: S it doesnt matter where you live its why and who your there for.
Communications is one of the most divers majors you can have. There are all kinds of job that fall under communications. My brother went into communications and now works in public relations for a band and makes plenty of money.
The man I nanny for is pretty rich and majored in communications though I have no idea what he does. I just want the piece of paper that says I dont have to die in the gutter! Once your homeless; game over! First of all English Lit. Dance yes its called got to New York,L. A,San Francisco ,or Boston. Do NOT major in chemistry, biochemistry, or biology unless you are planning to go to medical school.
These degrees are pretty worthless! Also no one hires scientist. Scientist just end up being temps at places for years. Music therapy has been proven through research to help populations of people. In a city close to me there are over 6 music therapist at work. Most music therapists will make a bit more than the average high school teacher, but of course you could always specialize in GMI and go out to California to work with celebrities and such with all that such you were talking about for an easy 6-digit payroll.
I give advice you to notice http: My supervisor sends me job offers every week from all over the country, working with different populations pediatrics, special education, adult and child psych.
Whoever wrote the description probably has a business degree and is stuck writing website columns bashing the liberal arts. So true, i think landscape architect takes the lead there though, just a glorified draftsmen in nice do up boots. I have degrees in philosophy, Latin, and English lit. Philosophy taught me the foundations of knowledge. Latin helped me with my math my other major and my knowledge of how languages grow and assimilate words and lose others.
English lit also taught me about human nature and the human condition. Now, I work for myself, keep my own hours, and set my own rates. I play from Tuesday — Thursday and work the other four days of the week.
Frankly I disagree that college is worthless and shouldnt be considered at all. The main problem is kids go to college and get degrees that are useless- like the ones in this article. When I graduated I had more job offers than I could follow up on and there is a shortage in the field. I started college at 23 after getting out of the military. You guys forgot Kinesiology. I have to go back to school and get an associates degree so I can get job.
I am a music therapy major and you got it completely wrong. Not to mention tons of psych classes and hours of clinicals every semester. And we can work with almost any group of ppl: Seriously, I sit on the internet most of the day.
My work consists of me opening a manual and finding the answers for other people. They could do that, but I have the experience so they pay me assloads to do it for them!
Great commentary on useless degrees. I got a nursing degree from a 2 yr. Because of Nursing, I can travel the world and have… there is a shortage and a high demand for nurses.
Sorry, but as a Latin major with a teaching job, I think your list is lacking in research. First of all, as new artifacts are being discovered all the time, not every piece of Latin has been translated. And as an engineering student i think that accounting and business management should be on the list as well.
I think actually using music to help people is better than playing in front of audience who payed an over priced ticket to see performance majors make them selves feel better. Also, there is a stable and growing job market for music therapist. Wow, the idiot that wrote this must have no concept of success in the real world.
Latin, as well as a classics major in general are prime routes to law school. Any mindless college student would know that. Just try reading into that a little more. There are 2 major psych feilds. One is worthless because of the fact that so many people have the Psych Arts major.
Neuroscience is already booming, and we barely know anythng about the human mind. So, what happened to doing something you want to do simply because you love it? Is that laughable now? If you want to major in dance — major in dance — who cares?!! There are literally thousands of television stations with thousands and thousands of jobs… guess who has the best chance of landing a position there?
Not everyone has to try to work in Hollywood. When really the Mormon missionaries are in no way doing their missionary service for college or for any sort of pay or future jobs.
They come back like normal college students like you and me and few actually study religion in college and go on to get a religion-related job. You should put a picture of a pastor or priest…someone that actually gets paid for their religious service…which goes against everything taught in the bible! This guy is one hell of a dumb fucker.
Are you that oriented towards consumerism? Your ignorance is on full display to the world here, sir. Huh, how not shocking.
Useless degrees can work if you are charming, good looking, very talented, intelligent, connected, got successful internships before graduating, got your degree in four years or less, or got a good job two years before graduating. The paycheck you earn with your degree will let you know the truth. This approach makes more sense, and at least you can look forward to having a life in a short period of time. Research, internships, and field experience is what counts. There is no such thing as a useless major — rather a useless undergrad experience.
Why not a major in advanced general studies which includes all liberal arts topics and science and focuses on skill evelopment like critical thinking and analytics, etc. Graduating BAs also need to be able to write, commincate well verbally, perform basic math, and conduct themselves as professionals, etc.
There is a long list of employability skills and few of those skills have any close relationship to a specific major. The focus is warped and the system broken. BTW — It has been my experience that successful English majors have excellent analytical skills. Let us focus more on creating usefull undergrad experiences! I love it when someone gets offended by this list. Insecurity is common among the future unemployment line.
I was a communication major. Out of my class, about half of the comm majors were very bright and got jobs quickly in a very broad range of occupations. That is the benefit of comm, it combines a lot of fields to make one a better produced and receiver of messages.
However, in the course of my studies, and wandering out and about my fine campus, I have come across the most pointless majors:. Generally gets trashed every weekend, never studies. Good work, you can type up a news article, though anyone with fingers and a keyboard can do the same without a liberal spin.
These liberals are found mostly studying in the grass around campus, or sunning topless. The only thing they do remotely useful is teh last. You people amuse me; math dodging, english course fearing, Kinesiology avoiding liberals who put up ungodly colors on cardboard cut outs to mimic clothes. Like Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, Literature Science, International Relations and Ethnic Relations, they are quasi-scientific subjects which could be mastered by a moderate amount of after-work reading and can even be tought online without classroom or practical participation.
Universities and colleges around the world, even reputable institutions of higher learning are more desperate than ever to keep their own staff employed and attract the unemployed with promises that somehow a university or college education regardless of subject matter will lead to a brighter future.
Political activists have long sought to turn their pet issues, ideologies and theories into official research and curriculum sciences, naturally under the guise of university research autonomy. But this is of little benefit to unsuspecting college graduates who today cannot find jobs or even gain entry to the qualified labour market. There are a few things cautious parents and careful prospective students can do to avoid the many traps the new university and college degree markets will not warn you about.
Here are some of them:. Non-practical programmes are always something you should scrutinize very carefully before committing to them. Beware of them and check with various professional bodies in advance to see what if any qualifications they are considered to provide depending upon your profession.
If any of these are truly legitimate or valuable they will likely be the ones offered by prestigous and known institutions that does not have to mean expensive. If you already have a Masters degree it might be better to get a professional bachelors degree which provides a basis for licensure in a profession than to get a doctorate in any subject.
I would have to say that criminology and criminal justice should be in the top 5 most worthless majors. Even if you plan on going into Law Enforcement, you learn everything you need to know at your training academy. Also, most departments only require 60 college credits if at all to qualify, so a degree in criminology and criminal justice is not even necessary for Law Enforcement.
Good luck trying to find a decent entry level position if you change your mind when you graduate and decide to do business. I find the real problem is college in general. I mean even engineering has this problem. Here in NYC, all the ad firms hire English majors to check and write copy. I work for a service management company, and no one gives a shit about literacy, not my employers, especially not my employees. Being vague, unrevealing, and bland is marketability.
People would rather deep-fry their literacy in nomenclature that, if you learn it, means far less than it sounds. So shut the fuck up and die. Yup…glad I picked engineering! Or maybe just the people who have failed in their own lives post their woes along with this sad group of screwups.
I know quite a few individuals with philosophy degrees formulating public policy. Art history on the other hand will take you into the world of science, working with archeologists, sociologists and others to gain a firm grasp on a specific period or research project.
Understanding the context of how and why some created a piece of art helps to reconstruct a period in history. Who do you think is examine all that artwork dug up from archeology sites? Very few Art History majors ever consider work in a museum.
The person writing this article truly lacks any understanding of education or our current social structures. Perhaps a degree in any of these field might help you gain a more holistic picture of the world you live in. English Literature as worthless, that one I find absurd. English is a universal language and opportunities are certainly plentiful, internationally. I think its funny that the picture for religion is of two Mormon missionaries. I know noone is going to read this…but how come all the people pictured are white?
Do only white people fail? Its funny that some people got offended by this- chill out folks. But, that makes me feel better about myself- though i realize its pretty useless too. Most businesses and corporations will train you to do what they want you to do. Employers look to see if you can stick with challenging tasks in life college. Having a degree period helps you get great jobs. Nor is the sole reason for getting a degree to lead one straight to a career.
Career building happens in graduate studies and further beyond. Seraphic Wannabe is right. All of the fun shit they make physics look like is just engineering stuff.
None of these majors are useless. As a matter of fact, many lawyers major in philosophy before they get a J. Besides, your argument is a slippery slope. One can argue from your premise and conclusion that any degree is useless. You say you took philosophy but if you did than you would know philosophy cannot be done by oneself. Rather it is done by dialoge with others written or spoken in order to learn. By the way I double majored in college Philosophy and English Lit.
I never smoked pot in college. Please do not place your experiences on all of us. You are a sad bitter person. I have been told that contrary to what i was told when hired I should never expect to get a full-time job in education.
I actually tend to think psychology is a useless major. Essentially, you have to learn your job anew. That psych major offers no advantage over anyone else. Oh, and add Women and Gender Studies to the list of useless majors. Students taking courses for that major spend them looking at their genitalia with mirrors and taking field trips to strip clubs. What a colossal waste of time, not to mention money.
And people wonder why the our futures are going down the drain. How much happier am I that I chose my profession rather than listening to the half-baked advice from an editor of the highly esteemed Holytaco. My Cost for my double major: I find Criminal Justice and Legal Studies, the most overrated and useless degrees ever created. WTF is peace studies? For example for one retail sales job they are prefering people with a degree, even though its not specialty sales that might demand one.
Say selling fine art or designer fashions where a degree may have some relevant uses. The ones that have the overall aptitudes to get the bachelors or higher under a demanding program.
The rest should be going to vocational schools, apprenticeship programs, reputatble technical colleges or community colleges OR learn on-the-job. Since it seems most would end up in such jobs. Some will say be above average or exceptional in any area and others below average or dismal in any area. If th person is not reasonably high level in academics in high school sending that person to college for a bachelors is likely a waste of time, money and puts them in a poor career path.
But if they must have a bachelors they will go taking light demand majors just to get the diploma so they can stay or be employed at all. I have a two year degree in accounting and had to earn a bachelors so majored in general studies taking the lightest courses I could, to get the bit of paper, because its demanded by employers. Even if that degree is unrelated to my work. Even though I have over twenty years of experience in accounting operations work and have an exceptional work record.
And my GPA in my associates was 3. Many of these are fantastic courses and incite intellectualism in any person who takes them. Many of these are worthwhile majors or courses and many people should get at least take a course in one of these because it opens your mind to reality and intelligence. If you actually go to graduate school you can generally make 60k and above….
I feel bad for the suckers studying Biology…. The masters is now considered the new bachelors etc. Whoever wrote this was probably some bitter prick who was never exposed to anything artistic, philosophical or literary. Also the biggest misconception of graduate school is that it can cost you a pretty penny…the truth of the matter is most schools will help you fund your education if you promise to be employed by them afterwards and if you get decent GRE scores…so yeah poo on you….
God there are a lot of cynical jerks on here. If that was the case everybody would be a business major. If you love social work or dance you should major in it and expect to get paid almost nothing to do what you love. I knew an dumb chick who was 45, in debt as a psychology major junior so she could be a psychiatrist. You have to have a degree in premed and then go to med school to be a psychiatrist!
Also, according to the message boards nobody knows what liberal arts are. It is not a major, it is a general degree that can be very valuable. I went to medical school, I do not regret It, I can pretty much find any job anywhere in the world. But I was always a bit ignorant with other majors, specially majors that were not in the scientific areas.
I do not understead what theyre all about. Like I thought a communications major was almost the same thing as journalism. Whats the difference, I really dont get it. Can someone please explain to me the diferrence?. I dissagree with social work and psychology. Theyre very useful in hospitals settings, they really help when it comes to difficult patients, homeless people,children, etc.
Start off with a decent GPA and a good skill set. Take a course in accounting, learn to program in Java, take a database course Oracle , biology, technical writing. Then you get major in dance or psy. I was surprised to see History missing from this list. I work as a web designer for a major company but I built those skills on my own. College is a good time to build character, friends, and good habits — earning a degree is only a part of the process.
Almost every director in hollywood made some shitty movie around their college age, you have to start somewhere. I was an English major which I will regret til the day I die and you hit that one right on the money.
Here i sit at an entry level position at some random small company. But, I like it. This article is pretty ignorant- there are lots of jobs out there for many of these degrees. As an English major myself, I know mostly about those. Writing happens- whoever WROTE this article got paid for it, and the majority of ppl that get paid to write are English or Journalism majors. Editors, copywriters, manuscript readers, and college-level English teachers who can fetch a decent salary if they stick to one place long enough were all English majors.
And I bet they all like their jobs better than computer and business majors who sit behind a desk and format files all day making a zillion dollars a year. They all have one thing in common though and that is that not one of them is doing the job for which they studied. One qualified as a math major, now heads up an advertising agency, another has a PhD in psychotherapy and works as a senior systems analyst for Nissan.
At the end of the day few people end up doing what they studied to do and those who do tend to be very grey, boring people. I laugh at all the students who I tutor and tell me that they are studying the social sciences when all the jobs are in applied sciences.
Thank goodness there are post-bachs! The reason companies hire Philosophy majors is because of their analytical and writing skills. Yes it is true that the ancient Greeks were into that sort of thing; however, it was a cultural thing and not merely a philosopher thing.
As a final not, I hope that you do understand that most Philosphy major go on to graduate schools with most attending Law schools. Tons of large and small companies are using video and multimedia to push marketing initiatives. I have worked at large, endless budgeted companies developing video content for trade shows and online ads posted on cnet.
And i also have worked at small, very low budget places that use film and audio to pull potential investors in. No degree is stupid per se, the only stupid thing is how the person leverages what skill set they possess.
Try majoring in foreign languages, and then landing a job in the mountains of North Carolina. Shit… worst decision I ever made.
Well, maybe second worst. You forgot a Finance Degree in Cleveland, Ohio. That is unless you come out of college with yrs of experience in the field, and who does that???
Trust me on this. Music therapists work in places like hospitals and clinics. Music therapists can sing, play guitar, piano, percussion, and can use those skills to do things like help people re-learn to speak after having a stroke. They help people regain physical coordination after an injury.
These people study neuroscience. You should have double majored in English and Math or History and Physics. Quite frankly, your writing skills are poor at best. The truth sometimes hurts. Liberal arts degrees really do have value. Your assumption that LA degrees teach common skills is dead wrong, and your inability to construct a paragraph without hideous errors in syntax is proof.
