Thinking and Linking by Joanne Jacobs
Four in 10 college graduates don’t need a degree to do their job.
Well, it’s hardly surprising that a degree in French Feminist Literature or Puppetry or Clownology wouldn’t be useful in most jobs. Since more folks than ever seem to be getting those kinds of degrees, I guess it’s only natural that the number of people using their degrees in their jobs would decrease.
I haven’t seen any evidence of an increase in kids getting these sorts of undergraduate degrees.
The most popular undergraduate degrees look like this:
*) Business Management and Admin
*) General Business
*) Elementary Education
*) General Education
*) English Language and Literature
No STEM majors in the list, but no post-feminist-liberation-theology of Ming dynasty poetry, either 🙂
Given the degree of difficultly needed to complete most STEM degrees, it’s not a stretch to not see any STEM majors on the list.
One of the smarting IT guys I ever knew didn’t graduate from high school, and only had taken a few classes in college 🙂
