Many colleges have what they call a liberal studies degree. What this means is that you earn a degree by taking whatever classes appeal to you. You take the basics like math, writing, etc., but then you take so many ‘upper level’ courses to get a degree.

What happens if you take that concept and build an entire college around it? The result is NYU Gallatin. A school where students take classes in some random subjects for a period of years and then receive a degree that is, let’s say, a bit eclectic.

So how do the graduates of this school do in the working world?

  • 69% of them are women, 28% men, 2% are other
  • 77% employed, 17% still in school, 6% unemployed
  • Of those who are employed, most are employed by NYU and make an average of $59k per year.

$59k per year. In Manhattan, where there is a fast food joint right across the street serving $20 cheeseburgers. Keep in mind that a nursing associates degree in Florida, where the taxes and cost of living are much lower, sees a new nurse starting at $65k.

Waste of money, and Biden is forgiving their student loans.

Not only are those useless degrees, they are apparently allowed to make up their majors….self title them?

What a crock of shit. These are the people that are going to be making up a chunk of society when I’m in my 60s and 70s….holy hell, we’re fucked.

    Not only are those useless degrees, they are useless people. Well, useless to the rest of society. They are of great use to the college and the democratic party.

Nauseating. And they will likely default on their student loans so that we pay for it. Soon we will hear (in Russian), ‘hello, I’m Vladimir, and my crew and I came to nuke your city.’

Their graduation ceremony should have included ” Now, all rise, and repeat after me – ” Do you want fries with that ? ” “

    The lucky ones will get hired by the universities, making 70k a year to recycle their bullshit, perpetuating it for the next few classes coming up.

I call these degrees “Pre Barista”.
