    If you are getting work and you like what you do, then there is nothing to knock. I am a big believer, however, that there IS such a thing as a useless degree.

    Liberal arts is a degree for the student who really wants to pay a huge tuition bill, but has no interest in learning skills or knowledge that can be used outside of school.

    Marketing degrees are essentially a scam. Tack on a few classes to a business degree, and you've got yourself a degree that is like a business degree... But opens less doors for you. Considering how devalued business degrees have become, marketing degrees have just gotten worse.

    And it might just be me, but I have a little bit of disdain for Arts degrees. I don't know why, but they always seem to think they have the hardest major at the university. I mean, are you joking? But as far as how useless they are... They rank right up there.

    But keep in mind I am a but jaded about this type of thing I guess.

    I think most degrees these days are pointless. Any/everyone can get one if they simply show up.

    They're losing their value.

    Plus, these days- you can learn anything via the internet.

    Sounds like someone that didn't attend college.

    Actually, it sounds like someone aware of the current situation.

    What happens when everyone has a college degree?

    You may have attended college, but you seem like the type that can't actually analyze... anything. Great test taker/memory, I assume? Which is also a problem. Kids show up to take tests, but learn nothing in the process.

    Yeah great test taker guess I'm okay at analyze things since I outperformed the stock market every year for a ten year stretch and turned a biz I started into million plus in revenue by year two.

    I do agree about current situation and a devaluing of college degree to an extent but as with anything it's what you put into it and make of it. And I have a masters.
