    In my eyes, all jobs are respectable in that if no one did the crappiest and toughest tasks, our society would crumble within minutes!

    I don't believe in lesser degrees.

    Not everyone can be a Mozart or da Vinci of society.

    We shouldn't look down on people who study non-academic things.

    Utter bull****.

    There are huge numbers of degree courses which do nothing to improve a persons career prospects, that do nothing more than give somebody an excuse to spend 3 years drinking and delaying joining the real world. Those are ****ing mickey mouse courses.

    Unless your degree has an obvious and substantial effect on your career then it is not worth the paper it's written on.

    Why do you think this? I'm curious. I totally agree with you. I studied it for a while before I left because I felt like I was wasting my time learning about everything but the mind itself. The subject isn't worthy of the name Psychology. :rant:

    Studying psychology isn't about studying the mind itself?! I applied to psychology because I want to study the mind and behaviour and stuff..

    Yeah it felt like i was studying anything but. there's all this "research" you have to read in your third year which is done by undergraduate students on undergraduate students, not representative of the real world and it doesn't really tell you anything at all. I swear once i read a study to the effect that if you made someone hold a glass of lemonade while playing a violent video game, they would show less aggression. i mean what's the point??! what does any of it prove in the larger scheme of things?
    compared with the rest of medicine, in the field of mental health we are still very behind.
    needless to say i dropped out.

    it really isn't. youll spend the better part of your degree learning about statistics and research methods, and the benefits of using a questionnaire vs interviewing participants. you also need to participate in quack studies done by other students to gain credit.
    huge waste of time. if you seriously plan on doing it i suggest you take a thorough look at the modules they're going to make you do.
