My BIL was talking about how his daughter wanted to switch her degree from Design to Art History but he put a stop to it because Art History is a useless degree.
Now personally I don't think there are useless degrees. Do you?
To me you go to college to learn not to be guaranteed a job when you get your degree because of the degree.
Some would say my daughters degree will be useless it's in Anthropology.
However, I know that just having a degree can get you in the door for some jobs. The degree doesn't even have to relate to the field you apply for sometimes as long as you just have one.
Some jobs even say, 60 hours of college required.
College or not, whatever you do, you are learning something about yourself and the world. That's my philosophy. I would no more tell my adult child what degree to get then tell him/her what life to pick.
