Yup he got his Art History degree and $100,000 in student loan debt for a job at Starbucks. Thanks America!

because its Americas fault that a degree in Art History has absolutely no use in the job market? what do you expect, its a degree in the history of ART!

Maybe that person doesn't need money to be happy, and is actually content working at Starbuck's because he/she has already been fulfilled by studying and mastering what he/she has loved for his/her whole life....? Maybe? Could it possibly be that the "job market," that thing that my American compadres jerk off to, doesn't have to dominate every facet of every moment of your life? Is that possible?

mfw being a chemical engineering major and seeing salaries right out of college

You can study chemical engineering and be successful, you can study art history and be successful.

The real waste is studying something you dont enjoy or feel passion for.

My mother has a master's degree in art history and she's never been without a job. She's been a teacher at multiple universities around the country and currently has a full time position at one of the highest rated private schools in the country. And my dad has a degree in photography and he's been a tenured professor at ASU for over 30 years. You guys always hate on people with degrees in art and I really don't get it.

But if everyone goes for the "useful" degrees, then they will become so common that they lose their value...

Lol at all the people trying to defend getting a useless degree.

"Oh, maybe he's happy being a poor, miserable, disappointment in a dead end job with virtually no opportunities to actually move up in the world!"

Yeah, he must be having loads of fun.

Music with emphasis in performance at a private college. Sure, it shows I was able to learn and devote myself to something for 4 years, but it is very weak on a resume compared to work-related experience. Sure, it may have made me a more well-rounded person. But was it worth $33k and 4 years away from my high school sweetheart (now my wife)? No. My wife went to a state school and owes about a third of my tuition. I have no one to blame but myself for not knowing what I wanted out of life. It's not my parents' fault for encouraging me. I know it could be worse, but it just sucks trying to dig myself out of this monetary hole and making my wife carry so much of the financial burden.

Just finished my degree of Modern History and Politics. At least I can do politics. But I could also do journalism I guess with the degree, we learn how to write and construct arguments and stuff.

This is the problem with the message currently being delivered in school which is that everyone should go to university. Aspire to go to uni and study something, sure, but recognise that degrees such as art, art hitory, english lit etc. are not courses designed to give you job opportunities. They are self-indulgent experiences to be undertaken once you can already stand up and support yourself.
#24 to #7 - kez (05/11/2013) [-]
Nah bro.

They are courses to do just to go to University.

University adds a lot to a person
