Colleges and universities around the U.S. (and world) offer a myriad of degrees from Art to Math but there are some degrees that are offered that to me, are laughable. As an example, as if having a liberal arts degree isn't bad enough, sometime in the mid 70's UCLA at Berkley offered a minor in "Protesting" to those studying communications, which, is a semi-laughable degree as opposed to a full blown belly laugh degree. One major that is almost universally offered are various degrees in Philosophy. Now, do understand that I have a huge affinity for ancient philosophy but is it really useful as a career builder? What position in any company could a degree in philosophy be a fully functional addition to a resume'? Perhaps, when applying for a waiter's job there might be some sort of ......naw, not even that. The thing is; it really isn't a bad thing to study or research any piece of knowledge but in a college setting, one has to pay thousands of dollars to achieve nothing other than uh.....knowledge. Only specific knowledge will put bread on the table while other types are befitting those who wish to emulate Cliff Clavin, the mailman who still lived with his mother on the TV series, "Cheers". Okay, your turn. What other degrees do you find somewhat "laughable"?
