Degrees To Avoid…Really?!?

22 Oct

There was a time when we encouraged youth to attend college to pursue a degree that inspired their passion. The love of learning was enough. Well, that time has come and gone people! Unless you luck out and your passion is also in high demand. Although, in this economic slump, there are many with master’s degrees who are not in high demand (myself included).

If you want to get hired, it is reported that employers are unimpressed with the following majors:

  1. Architecture (seriously?!)
  2. Philosophy or Religious Studies (because we certainly have no need for this in this day and age!)
  3. Anthropology or Archeology
  4. Ethnic or Civilization Studies
  5. Information Systems
