Reader’s Comment: Pointless degrees cruelly flatter ‘graduates’


In response to Prof Eddie Bromhead: Is a degree in Irish women’s studies the most worthless on the planet?, Busy Mum wrote:

I think the whole point of degrees like this is to make the ‘graduate’ feel successful and ‘equal’. If higher education has to be inclusive, I suppose it has to offer something for people who are incapable of doing anything else.

It seems very cruel to me to hoodwink people into thinking that they are cleverer than they are; they will stop relying on their common sense and become the unknowing tools – and the laughing stock – of their overlords….maybe this is already the case…..
