I completed my degree in computer science this year. I was just wondering with all these micky mouse degrees flying about; what degree would you do? and what degree would you completely avoid?

Im not quite sure that is degree level; but i suppose although the hairdressing market seems slightly oversaturated.

Any degree you find challenging and stimulating, as well as choosing the right university that has more to offer than others; for example, having better career services, networking events, useful societies. Most graduate jobs (e.g. pr, business analyst, marketing, accounting, finance, policy advisor) do not require you to do a specific subject, so even if you're doing BA Beetles Studies and gaining relevant experience whilst at uni then you have a higher chance of being successful in your chosen job field.

Beetles studies ahah; networking certianly is a huge component of logetivity. as well as extra curriculum activities; i wouldnt per se from my experience that certian jobs dont ask for certian expertise in-terms of degree taken though. For me within computing almost all jobs are looking for a (Mathmatic/Computing/IT) degree.

that's funny because i can point to all sorts of people who have degrees in other things but are just good software engineers (especially if the job is front-end or mobile).

agree with kkboyk, literally any degree + going to a good uni (or being amongst the most driven/intelligent at a less good uni) + drive/ambition to seek opportunities will set you up.
