Is your major on the ‘useless’ list?

June 9, 2011

But advertising worked like magic for them.

The Daily Beast recently published a list of what it deems to be the 20 “most useless college degrees.”  Predictably, pretty much all of the liberal arts are included on the list, as well as advertising, journalism, chemistry and a few other mild surprises.  They’re basing their definition of “useless,” of course, on how much money a graduate will make once they’ve been loosed upon the real world.  But is money the only value of a degree?  Do you agree with their list?  Take a look, and post your opinions here in Happenings!
