Breaking! Breaking! Women’s Studies is a poor investment

From PJ Media:

A 2-year degree from the Community College of Denver in Dental Hygiene has an ROI of $612,991, which are the additional earnings a graduate can expect to earn over 20 years compared to a high school graduate. Average first-year wages are about $61,000 and the cost of the degree is less than $16,000.

A 4-year degree from the University of Colorado-Boulder in Women’s Studies has an ROI of only $173,545, at a cost of more than $92,000 and estimated first-year earnings of only $23,461. More.

Reality check: Bitching about men should be free. It is worth what you pay for it.
Also, beware any course with “Studies” in its name.

  • Hooda thunk it!

    You mean those with “degrees” in women ‘s studies, gender studies, queer studies, first nations studies, etc. will not find a job? I guess there are not enough positions in our Stalinist commissions, tribunals, diversity officers, etc. to provide all of them with jobs.

    • Reader

      I know if I found a degree in “… studies” was listed in a resume someone presented to me, I wouldn’t consider them for any job in the knowledge that they are going to be nothing but trouble. Besides it doesn’t qualify them for any job except for teaching grievance studies at some liberal college or university so they can turn out more useless diplomas and degrees.

    They should just be strippers

      Most of the (insert name of class here) studies grads would not make good strippers, nobody would frequent the club.

        Most of the (insert name of class here) studies grads do not make good human beings

  • Don’t these people have parents? Lord knows kids their age aren’t very grown up these days, and in most cases mommy and daddy will be footing the bill for this nonsense. Are the progenitors really so stupid or negligent that it doesn’t occur to them to put a stop to this?

    • Alain

      Yes, that has always been a mystery to me, having raised four children, all attending university. Of course neither my sons nor my daughters were interested in this crap, especially with the cost of university.

      • I have long been convinced that a lot of people don’t actually care about their children very much at all. Still, you’d think they’d at least care about the money.

      • ntt1

        both of my kids studied engineering yet were required to waste time in a ****studies course. if anything it strengthened their resolve to avoid the entire faculty and its students. The problem is the universities make huge dollars from teaching the crap.

      I’ve told my kids since they were little that I’ll pay for anything that gets them a good job.
      And that if they want to go to a ‘studies program they are on their own.

    Getting a “degree” in any kind of “studies” is akin to advertising yourself as a Dilletante.
