Why do people discredit social science degrees?Watch
also in the UK it’s pretty common to have a university degree so you folks start to rank them in terms of hierarchy because for whatever reason it helps you determine their level of importance. where im from tho it’s much less common to have a university degree, so social science degrees are not frowned down upon, least to my knowledge. just having a university degree in itself is classed an achievement.
"Universities" use that as cash cows, you do not need any A levels or GCSE to make it into a Psychology, SS or History degree. During this August I received several calls from random schools' clearance departments trying to push me into degrees like that Social Science, Psychology, History, Anthropology and even law. I never indicated interest in anything even remotely similar. I do not have GCSEs or A Levels or any English Language cert. No problem "They can work with that" ....
I'd be very careful when looking for a decent school capable of offering a competitive course in Social Science that would be worth the 9k/y and lead somewhere.
I was just watching a video of Katie Hopkins where she was basically saying that if you’re going to university to study psychology then you shouldn’t go. Why do people discredit sociology, psychology so much and not see it as a genuine degree? I know finding work in these fields is often hard but in my perspective, they’re two subjects that really open your eyes and teach you so much about people and society. What do you think?
2.People that discredit them only think about the career prospects of the degree and how much money you can gain out of it not the actual value itself
It's like saying there's no future in golf course management degrees
