I think it's safe to say that it's not the education that will save the world.

I think if you get an Art Degree and expect a job, you REALLY didn't think that one through..

Pic unrelated.......





or is it?

So you're saying that everyone who works on the concept art, animation, ads, book covers, and commercials are jobless men and women? since probably most of them did take an art degree.


Huh.

Except those people are probably 1 in thousands who actually found successful well paying jobs.
User avatar #37 to #34 - charderpizard (05/11/2013) [-]
Art is useless then since no one gets a job. Why are we funding pointless programs? screw animation and all that, it's a waste right? Who needs animated cartoons and ads we have actors for that am I right? Oh and book covers too, we don't need that **** , we're here to read not to look at drawings that anybody can do. And Video Games! all we need is programmers, they can do their own drawings, I'm pretty sure they teach that in Computer Programming. Man, thanks for that, now i see art is useless since no one gets a job.

"1 on a 1000" i what I said, I gave a RATIO..A NUMBER..Did I say ANYWHERE no one gets a job? No, I said GETTING A JOB in art is one of the hardest fields, Christ..WAIT lemme guess, Your panties are in a twist because YOU'RE either A an art major or B going to major in Art?

No, but art is a field with little jobs and the large amount of art majors are not helping the world economy.

This is the problem with the message currently being delivered in school which is that everyone should go to university. Aspire to go to uni and study something, sure, but recognise that degrees such as art, art hitory, english lit etc. are not courses designed to give you job opportunities. They are self-indulgent experiences to be undertaken once you can already stand up and support yourself.
#24 to #7 - kez (05/11/2013) [-]
Nah bro.

They are courses to do just to go to University.

University adds a lot to a person

You can study chemical engineering and be successful, you can study art history and be successful.

The real waste is studying something you dont enjoy or feel passion for.

My mother has a master's degree in art history and she's never been without a job. She's been a teacher at multiple universities around the country and currently has a full time position at one of the highest rated private schools in the country. And my dad has a degree in photography and he's been a tenured professor at ASU for over 30 years. You guys always hate on people with degrees in art and I really don't get it.

hey i'm gonna get my degree in graphic design next month. Your comment really cheered me up man :)

Because people always bad mouth art degrees over things degrees in science, math, or business. In my opinion, if you go for art don't half ass your work because companies need to look at your portfolio and only choose the best.

Maybe that person doesn't need money to be happy, and is actually content working at Starbuck's because he/she has already been fulfilled by studying and mastering what he/she has loved for his/her whole life....? Maybe? Could it possibly be that the "job market," that thing that my American compadres jerk off to, doesn't have to dominate every facet of every moment of your life? Is that possible?

one flaw in your logic

why did he even study?
User avatar #40 to #39 - jimli (05/11/2013) [-]
...Because he wanted to learn about the thing he was studying?

dude you can learn more with the internet and some books its not like he NEEDS to go to collage to learn stuff collage just gives you a paper that says i learned this stuff
User avatar #43 to #42 - jimli (05/11/2013) [-]
I agree with your latter point, but you don't think being in an environment that surrounds you with scholars who are studying the same thing as you doesn't make it easier and overall more effective? In a class, seminar, or symposium, you get to interact with someone who has dedicated his/her life to the subject. You can't interact with a webpage, you can only work with the information that has already been given.
I take it that you aren't of college age yet?
User avatar #44 to #43 - amegaara (05/11/2013) [-]
i am in my second year in collage and yeah now i get your point about having a guy who studied the subject with you
User avatar #45 to #44 - jimli (05/11/2013) [-]
My mistake. And wow, thanks for being a good sport about it; though I see what you mean about the internet. In fact, I learned a lot through the internet before coming to college... it was definitely a way better source than high school. But I do think that the right college professor could be an infinitely better teacher than any online source.

I'm a theatre major. Am I a bad person?

Music with emphasis in performance at a private college. Sure, it shows I was able to learn and devote myself to something for 4 years, but it is very weak on a resume compared to work-related experience. Sure, it may have made me a more well-rounded person. But was it worth $33k and 4 years away from my high school sweetheart (now my wife)? No. My wife went to a state school and owes about a third of my tuition. I have no one to blame but myself for not knowing what I wanted out of life. It's not my parents' fault for encouraging me. I know it could be worse, but it just sucks trying to dig myself out of this monetary hole and making my wife carry so much of the financial burden.

Lol at all the people trying to defend getting a useless degree.

"Oh, maybe he's happy being a poor, miserable, disappointment in a dead end job with virtually no opportunities to actually move up in the world!"

Yeah, he must be having loads of fun.

You are truly an ignorant bastard. Keep Your stupid opinions to yourself, the world will truly be a better place because of it. Consider it doing your part for the advancement of society.

But if everyone goes for the "useful" degrees, then they will become so common that they lose their value...

Just finished my degree of Modern History and Politics. At least I can do politics. But I could also do journalism I guess with the degree, we learn how to write and construct arguments and stuff.

mfw being a chemical engineering major and seeing salaries right out of college
User avatar #52 to #47 - kiingofaces (05/11/2013) [-]
Just wondering what they are in your area because in mine; chemical engineers have good salaries but nearly no job openings.
In the south it's all NASCAR, Kenny Chesney and farming..
#62 to #47 - John Cena (05/11/2013) [-]
One thing is seeing the salaries.
The other is actually getting them.
