I read an article the other day on Yahoo News. The title, “Don’t Bother Earning These 5 Degrees.”
I love learning, and I have always wondered if I didn’t pursue an education in theology, what would I have pursued? Growing up, I was always interested in architecture. During my senior year of college, I took a liking to philosophy and even applied to grad schools for Middle Eastern studies. Anthropology intrigued me, even though I disagreed with much of the inherent assumptions in that field of study. I even considered becoming a research librarian, just so I could spend my days among books. Basically, anything with a hefty amount of theory and information—that would be right up my alley.
So, guess what five degrees the article listed as undesirable or ones you “may want to avoid.”
- Philosophy or Religious Studies
- Anthropology or Archaeology
- Area Ethnic or Civilization Studies
- Information Systems
Great! Just great!
One more piece of evidence showing I would be/am/or will be a worthless member of society…if I trusted the opinion of others.
Always remember, an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
