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?
Sadly, it's not a joke as I learned the hard way.

And yeah, Frankie, who could possibly have a beef against puppetry?

Puppetry leads to thinking women are equals and the world is more that 6000 years old! Smile

Hm...good point.

And now that I think about it, puppets are like clowns and we all know that clowns are evil.

Clown Puppets are the Ultimate Evil.

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.

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?

It all depends what you're getting the education for. If it's to prepare you for a high paying job in the future, then sadly, yes, a lot of those listed are worthless endeavors - or at best stepping stones to professional schools like business, law, medicine, etc.. If you're going to college for personal enrichment (which is the correct way to approach higher education), then none of the courses of study listed are worthless.

In hindsight, I wouldn't approach ANY college major as a means of making money in the future. I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering and work as an aerospace engineer, but I know that, in my field alone, there are lots of skilled designers and drafters with a technical college degree who make twice the money that guys with a masters or a PhD make. There are also doctors out there making less than $80,000/year and lots of lawyers struggling by on less than $30,000/year while experienced welders, electricians, HVAC repair guys, etc. make over $100,000/year. The bottom line is that, while certain high paying jobs require a higher education, the vast majority do not. Therefore the 'uselessness' of a college degree is irrelevant to your success or prosperity.

RE: Conservapedia - Worst college majors
In order for an electrician to make 100 grand he would have to work 12 hours a day every day all year in the northern states where the rate is above $35 an hour. I know because I have come close to doing this myself.

I guess it depends on one's speciality. A residential electrician is somewhere like that. Some of the more exotic types, like a free bonding lineman who does high tension repair work will make at or beyond that level I listed for a days work. They earn it, of course. Landing on a live line charged at 420,000 volts, you only get one mistake......

Bottom line, in any profession, if you want to make a lot of cash, expect to work your butt off. Easy money is a fantasy.

How hard you work isn't entirely true... I've had to work 12 hour shifts 7 days a week, saw the paycheck and said "wow, this isn't half what I made 10 years ago for a 40 hour work week" For that matter, if I had any paying consistent clients, I'd make more in 10 hours (did the math, 11.4) than I do in 40--and it'd be a lot easier.

Saying "skilled" work is more accurate than "working hard".

Journalism, huh?
There seems to be a lot of art, psychology, science, some history and through most of the things listed, one learns language arts.

Guess somebody is needing the slaves to stop being so uppity.

______________ Puppetry? I misread.
I thought it said puberty. Blink


But, I don't see reading comprehension on the list... meh, fuck puppets. Dodgy
