Xythero: I could see it being useful paired with a business or PR major, if you wanted to get into business side of hip hop. Or paired with a social work major. Or even paired with a writing or philosophy degree, so that maybe we could get some songs that aren't just about farking or fighting.
xnecron: hasty ambush: Krieghund: It's a minor. You don't "do anything" with a minor.Then why offer it? Exactly how much of your student loan debt is acquired because you take something you don't anything with?Part of the uneeded expense off a higher education is all these courses you are made to take that have nothing to do with your major but are supposd to make you more "well rounded". In fact they do not make you more well rounded they increase your debt load and provide employment for people who were stupid enough to get majors in stupid areas to begin with. Exactly how many meaningful employment opportunities are there for people who major in gender studies for example? Outside of academia (and that can hardly be called meaningful) damn few.Yeah, you're obviously not concern trolling here at all. If you don't think non-major classes in college make your education broader and more well-rounded, you're either lying or a fool. Labeling gender studies as "stupid" and "meaningless" is a pretty big red flag, not to mention your dismissal of academia in general.On the whole, 1/10.
EyeballKid: hasty ambush: I am "dismissal of academia in general" because of things like the University of Delaware's "All whites are racist" indoctrination or that a person can get a masters degree in puppetry. Or the fact they give people like Bill Ayers, Peter Singer, Ward Churchill and Anthea Butler jobs.I take it you have a home-school PhD?
Jument: T.M.S.: I went to college for a while. I don't recall anyone particularly concerned what they were going to do with their degree. When did this become so important?I went to university for engineering. I knew exactly what I'd be doing as my career before I showed up for my first class (and I've been at it for almost 20 years).

I grew up with it and still think at it's best it's only good for comedic novelty songs or as sometimes appropriate background music if you lose the vocals.
Shirley Ujest: I met up with a twenty year old whose major is Organic Gardening.Discuss.
