Most Useless Undergraduate Majors?

Most Useless Undergraduate Majors?
« on: July 13, 2007, 07:12:37 PM »
Okay, I was just wondering what everyone thinks are the most useless undergraduate majors. I, for one, am an art historian. Basically, I can either become a teacher (but only for post-secondary schools), work at a museum, or serve coffee to hipsters (dumber versions of neo-bohemians). I'm not even qualified to teach basic english composition high school courses, and it's not like I can claim to help people either (seriously, art historians just look at f**king art all day)! On top of that, the starting salary for people with art history degrees is about 20k/ year, which is even lower than people with art degrees. That's the end of my rant. So what's everyone else's opinion?

my opinion: shouldn't have been an art history major since you don't seem happy with it  ;D

on a more serious note...anything music related and a person that doesn't want to teach music or become a musician (and it seems like 1/2 of the music majors I talk to are like this...)

Comparative linguistics.

I can, well, keep studying. That's it. To be able to teach, I'd need a PhD.

Although, I should point out that a communications degree still has more obvious career paths (PR, Advertising, TV Production, Radio Production, On-Air Personality, etc.) than most of the other majors mentioned. ;-)

I gotta defend my major's honor...
