Conservapedia - Worst college majors
http://www.conservapedia.com/Worst_College_Majors
The worst college majors are fields of study that leave the student with relatively few job opportunities and often a distorted or ultra-liberal view of the world. Students incur an average debt in excess of $25,000 for attending college, and these college majors can leave such students without the ability to pay off their loans, which are typically not dischargeable in bankruptcy.

We encourage college students and employers to improve this list over time.

Please note that Theology is not on the list, most especially Christian theology...but comparative religions class is on the useless list. Strange that they also listed tractor driving. I expected conservatives to take learning to maintain a field of produce as serious as my liberal ass does. Apparently not. Of course if Conservapedia had their way removing this education, especially with the list of majors, society would be pushed back into the 1400's or even more past that.

Tell me what yall think... Some of these courses on the list I do agree are FILLER (but not worthless), but what do you think?

I agree that all those courses (not majors) are stupid. I guess art and science just isn't important to the world. facepalm.jpg

I hear what you are saying.. of course I agree most are fillers, but any kind of education is not stupid. Even if it were Christian history (which strangely didnt make it on the list either. What good is christian history when you go looking for a job?) I might actually take it especially if I were to be an American history major. Many of the courses on the bottom can help you specialize in history.

Oh I agree. Education, no matter the topic, is great IMO.

your avatar is misleading Germany...you look like a teaparty member, but you sure dont post like one. I must say it is rather refreshing to actually have a Ron Paul supporter that I can actually talk to. Most on your side are like robots. No matter what is said if it goes against programming it does not compute and is therefore irrelevant.

You actually have an open mind and willing to accept criticism. I have to respect that.

RE: Conservapedia - Worst college majors
The majors aren't bad in themselves--now I'm not saying the person ends up in the field, or the person gets the degree for the field as much as teaching (my psychology degrees are for me to teach... then the college laid off so the jobs dried up). As a matter of fact, just skimming those degrees, I've seen probably 1/4 as requirements for jobs in my area!

Now the courses.... on the surface they seem pretty dumb (well, most). However, a possibility exists that the classes could be very useful depending on the topics. Just picked things at "random": The Science of Harry Potter--could be useful if it discusses scientific principals that could make it work, just not exactly as how it does in the story. Self-Esteem--well this could save someone's life actually... depending on what's taught. Gaga for Lady Gaga: Sex, Gender, and Identity--if the class is taught as "Sex, Gender, and Identity" it could easily be a standard psych class or even medical-based class.


But then the only class I have ever taken that I thought was absolutely pointless: College orientation. And even then, it could be helpful to people.

Well thank you. I'm merely a Constitutionalist. I want the federal govenrnment to abide by it and states to pass laws that don't violate it. I'm pretty flexible on policy itself but hold individual liberties in the highest regard. As long as it's legal and benefits society I'll always consider a position.

RE: Conservapedia - Worst college majors
Joke site. Please let it be a joke. It can't be true?

Those liberal majors - I can see maybe one or two which might be very specific jobs but please, Evolutionary Biology, Environmental Science, Forestry, Human resources, Horticulture, Anthropology, Climatology, Astronomy are all *useless* ?

I mean, you want some unqualified git in HR then, rather than some guy who has an idea what he's doing?

RE: Conservapedia - Worst college majors
In regards to getting a job... which is really all judging a major ought to be about. The top of that list is pretty spot on for bad majors. Some of them aren't really fitting, but I think it's mostly accurate. Much more than other posts on that site.

I think the most biased mention on there would be Revolutionary Marxism being #2 in bad courses... Although without seeing the course description I can't fully judge it yet it would seem like a viable specific history/philosophy course. That and the feminism hatred are pretty harsh.
