I know a number of people who have graduated from degrees that some could see as useless, but are now professionally more successful than most of my friends. There's a lot to be said for studying something that genuinely interests you enough to stay so engaged you easily get that 2:1 or that First.

A huge number of employers see graduates as people who can prove their ability to commit, learn, communicate, and succeed - the subject often bears no relevance unless it's geared towards a particular profession (medical, engineering etc).

Of course there are degrees in things like Klingon, The Science of Superheroes, and Harry Potter. I'm genuinely not sure how I fee about these...

I feel like if you can progress further and quicker and gain more experience from working rather than going to uni to study your chosen field then the subject is less worthwhile, e.g. personally I think getting a law apprenticeship is far more useful than a degree especially nowadays where experience is paramount to getting you further

Art is a great degree, allows for all sorts of careers once done. For e.g. who do you think does all the incredible film effects for blockbuster movies??? Art grads. Once into supervisor roles pulling in a nice 80k a year.

gender studies because the entire subject is based around pseudoscience and leftist propaganda.
