Degrees Not to Earn – Yahoo! Education
I see articles like this a lot lately…filling in some copy space in the 24 hour news cycle. I get that. You need something to write, and here is a ready-made list that, on the surface, seems relevant: looking to go to college, don’t study this! The list!
So, out of self-flagellation I read these lists, only to see my degree (ok, I have a literature degree which is, really, just a more specific liberal arts degree) rounding out the top of the do-not-get list.
I really wish I would have paid attention to these sorts of things as an undergrad. I think that honing a really cool world-view could have been a nice add-on to a paying degree over being the central theme to a degree that doesn’t pay the mortgage.
