STOP REBLOGGING THIS I ALMOST DIED
I FINALLY FOUND THE VIDEO TO MY FAVORITE GIF!!!!
HOLD ON TO YOUR PANTIES
I didn’t even get 30 seconds in before having to leave I was laughing that hard.
HOT COFFEE UP MY NOSE
Oh my god yes.
YES. YOU GO BOY. YOU DANCE YOUR SHIT OFF TO MADONNA.
FUCK THAT NOISE
The world would be a bland, boring, piece of serious crap if it weren’t for these “useless” careers and the art that comes from them.
What a load of garbage.
Reblogging solely for Alex’s comment.
Well whoever came up with this census is a huge dumb-nut.
Imagine being the guy who was designing this slide? He must’ve been laughing his ass off.
Personally, I’dve just left it as black text in Times New Roman against a flat white background…
THEATRE IS NOT A BULLSHIT MAJOR. FUCK YOU NBC!
The world seems to think anything artistic is bullshit and that you should go to college to make money and not to grow as a person/artist.
Because they’re numbnuts.
FUCK YOU NBC
I really hate this whole idea that if you major in anything but pre-law, pre-med or business you’re somehow a failure. There’s more to life than waking up every morning to put on a suit and go collect a paycheck until you’re too old to work anymore. It’s cool if you WANT to do that, but it’s not for everyone.
Ah, the American Education system! Where the actual education is made up and your grades only matter! No, but seriously…part of the reason our education system is so far in the shitter is because we have an education system that puts massive emphasis on science and mathematics over everything else, all in hopes of not being outdone by the rest of the world. Guess what, America?! We’re STILL behind, and other nations are teaching their children science and mathematics, AND geography, AND history, etc. all while subsequently turning their students bilingual. We have high school graduates who can’t even fucking read, and the rest of the world has students that master two languages at once. Get it together, U.S.!
I use to be an Arch major. Nowadays it’s almost impossible to find a job with an Arch degree…
To be quite honest, I don’t care how ‘entertaining’ these majors are. They are fucking useless, let’s just add psychology to that list and sociology. What can you do with those degrees? Essentially going to school for something in the college of “art science” and getting a degree in that, worthless. I hate that they call it ‘science’ because honestly, I’m a science major, I know how hard it is to be one.
I think the useless lable is based on ability to get a job and sustain a living with said degree. In which case yes these are “useless” mainly because it’s going to be difficult to get what you paid for.
They are only “useless” because our society has a propensity for pretending that nothing except science and mathematics matter. This isn’t true. If our society took the actual time to understand the pragmatic value of these other fields of education then maybe these degrees wouldn’t be useless. What would be preferable? For EVERYONE to major in medicine, mathematics, law, or science?
No, but the thing is these degrees have the lowest rate of receiving a job directly out of school. And when you pay 30k+ a year to go to a school for one of these majors, it’s kinda a big deal that you can GET a job in the first place. The demand for these jobs isn’t generated by society: it’s generated on a need basis. The jobs these degrees can give are in heavily competitive fields that are usually hard to break into. While there will always be a need for artists, actors, architects and etc. the relative saturation of the market for jobs such as these compared to the number of jobs that are available for them is pretty high.
So they’re not useless, but unless you’re going to college on a scholarship and have a good backup plan, it can be a serious gamble as to whether or not to actually major in them. I’m all for people doing what they want to do, but when they’re up to their eyeballs in debt because they picked a major that has few jobs on the market for a lot of people, it’s pretty much their fault.
Yes, and also no. You are correct in your comments, however, I disagree with the part about demand not being created by society. The demand of these degrees has everything to do with society. I also agree that “it’s pretty much their fault,” but the problem is that it SHOULDN’T BE in the first place. The problem is the lack of jobs and the insanely high cost of tuition that keeps rising, not the degrees themselves. We live in a society, especially in the States, that has tunnel vision with education, focusing on very specific subjects, creating very specific markets for these subjects, and still demanding degrees in order to even find a decent job while placing college education as a MUST that they can then charge you money to death for. This will eventually come crashing down; it has already begun. Most students today are seriously contemplating if a college education is even worth it anymore, and it’s getting to a point where we have to have the national news do a bit on “useless degrees.” The consequences of this set up will only get worse.
I am actually crying right now. The amount of joy this has brought me just now makes up for the shitty feelings I’ve had today.
