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!

it's not his place to blame everybody else for an inability to put a degree to good use, but your complete lack of appreciation for art history is pretty disheartening

Maybe in America it's a useless degree but in europe we acctualy have history and art. And there is work with an art degree.    
   
I await the red thumbs you so called "freedom" fags are going to give me.

>implying america has no history and no art

First off, we have as much history as any other nation in the world. We haven't had giant cities and towns for as long, but do you honestly think Native Americans have no history?
Secondly, art. I've never been interested in art, and I don't know of very many artists. But even I can think of one, amazingly famous artist that america has had. Walt ************* Disney.

Before you cry and say "but that's only one you can think of! I can think of x, y, and z right off the top of my head!), consider the fact that europe is larger than america.


Also, what real use is there in an art degree?

I don't really know what use there is with the degree, but i know alot of people trough my work as a carpenter who have the degree and buys services from the place where i work.
And sorry about the history thing it's just a stereotypical joke... like those are uncommon on here.

On the joke: Eh, that was my fault for not realizing it was a joke. I got way too butthurt over it.

On the main point: Yeah, things like interior designing or carpentry would have a reason for a degree in art, you're completely correct there. Just seems like most people don't really think of that.

I guess the degree is just knowing what you are talking about when you are teaching people of artists of the past.

So you're saying that everyone who works on the concept art, animation, ads, book covers, and commercials are jobless men and women? since probably most of them did take an art degree.

Art is useless then since no one gets a job. Why are we funding pointless programs? screw animation and all that, it's a waste right? Who needs animated cartoons and ads we have actors for that am I right? Oh and book covers too, we don't need that ****, we're here to read not to look at drawings that anybody can do. And Video Games! all we need is programmers, they can do their own drawings, I'm pretty sure they teach that in Computer Programming. Man, thanks for that, now i see art is useless since no one gets a job.

No, but art is a field with little jobs and the large amount of art majors are not helping the world economy.

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?

I agree with your latter point, but you don't think being in an environment that surrounds you with scholars who are studying the same thing as you doesn't make it easier and overall more effective? In a class, seminar, or symposium, you get to interact with someone who has dedicated his/her life to the subject. You can't interact with a webpage, you can only work with the information that has already been given.
I take it that you aren't of college age yet?

My mistake. And wow, thanks for being a good sport about it; though I see what you mean about the internet. In fact, I learned a lot through the internet before coming to college... it was definitely a way better source than high school. But I do think that the right college professor could be an infinitely better teacher than any online source.

Just wondering what they are in your area because in mine; chemical engineers have good salaries but nearly no job openings.
In the south it's all NASCAR, Kenny Chesney and farming..

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.

Because people always bad mouth art degrees over things degrees in science, math, or business. In my opinion, if you go for art don't half ass your work because companies need to look at your portfolio and only choose the best.
