Are the easiest/lowest paying degrees female dominated?Watch
1. Women’s studies
2. Religious studies
3. English literature
4. Sports management
5. Creative writing
6. Communications studies
7. Liberal studies
8. Theater arts
Other than sports management, are there any that could be male dominated? Doubt it.
And here's a list of the lowest paying degrees:
- Health and Medical Preparatory Programs
- Visual and Performing Arts
- Communication-Disorders Sciences and Services
- Studio Arts
- Drama and Theater Arts
- Social Work
- Human Services and Community Organizations
- Theology and Religious Vocations
- Early-Childhood Education
- Counseling and Psychology
Again, quite clearly, degrees that are incredibly popular with women. Knowing that women make up close to 60% of all students and the % is growing every year (last year was the highest ever) it seems that we'll end up with a system where a huge number of female students are doing easy/poorly paid/unproductive degrees (using student loans that most of them will never pay back ) while men are realizing that getting into a lucrative apprenticeship is far better than spending years and tens of thousands of pounds on some pointless course. Meanwhile we will have to import more and more engineers, IT specialists etc. Not to mention it will also contribute to maintaining the gender wage gap. And all of this while our national debt is increasing every year. Can we really afford to bankroll millions and millions of girls doing these useless degrees year after year, especially when we know their numbers will only go up?
There is no connection necessarily between the money people earn and the worth of their jobs or indeed their worth as human beings.
Nor am I sure you know that women are increasingly becoming the majority in subjects such as medicine where in the UK academic requirements are very high.
I personally could never envision doing anything other than STEM and STEM needs more value and appreciation in society. You have all the arts appreciation etc but STEM is taken for granted but if we were to take away the feats of modern technology, medicine, engineering etc we would be living in mud huts. I'm sorry but women's studies aren't going to cut it.
+1 to Economics as well.

That's hardly the case.

We were past that stage a long time before modern technology existed, so not really true.
