It’s a sign of young age during the first time for many when they’re free from high school, some may be moving away from home and parents for the first time and there’s no one to tell them what to do and how to get work done. Couple this with a tendency for universities to corral students into specifications that aren’t in the student’s interests and there you have it. What I mean by this is consider that a student is interested in fine art. That’s a general degree and leaves the student with more options to pursue many different things. But say someone suggests that the student major in pottery instead and hypes it up. The student might not know that minoring in pottery while majoring in fine art is a better way to get their foot in the door and gain experience until it’s too late to scrap all those credits without wasting time and money. At that point graduating and getting out is better than debt and nothing to show for. It is ultimately on the students but that doesn’t meant schools are innocent. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Derek Stamper New You 2021-08-04T23:00:33+01:00Added an answer on August 4, 2021 at 11:00 pm No one in school really presents you with critique of the degrees you are applying for or presented to you and this critique comes by chance through whatever social network you have. Universities never comment on the employability or demand of any degree let alone advice on it. For all you care a gender studies degree is just as good as computer science degree. Talented people will excel with any degree if at all. So it kinda distorts things as people you look up to may barely even have a degree. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
