The Most Useless College Majors

January 23rd, 2012 Posted in Offbeat News

Some college majors are more valuable than others. And then, there are the college majors which are absolutely, positively useless.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, here’s a rundown of the most useless college majors:

—  Agriculture: Farms have gotten so efficient that there is almost no need for “farm managers.”

—  Fashion Design: While the world of high fashion is glamorous and exciting, it’s also highly exclusive and competitive. Tens of thousands of people get this degree each year, but very few jobs ever open up.

—  Theater: Actors have to deal with long periods of unemployment and frequent rejection, and most have to hold second jobs.

—  Animal Science: The degree is so specific that it’s almost impossible to apply to anything else.
