Sad to say matthew here is very right. From a strictly employment basis, they are absolutely worthless. Of course philosophy isn't worthless, but you won't score a job on philosophy alone, because its core principle is basically idle thinking. And idle thinking is just a big no no in a modern society that sanctifies labour.matthew_lane said:No it really isn't. The fact is that women studies much like philosophy is an intellectual dead end as far as gainful employment goes. if you get a doctorate in Women Studies, the only area your field of expertise is going to lead to is becoming a lecturer in womens studies... An neither course load is worthy af academic respect, since neither philosophy nor womens study are fact based systems: Both are just absorbing the opinions of other equally unskeptical people, without critical analysis.darkfox85 said:Every time I post in threads like these I get a sickening lurch in my stomach, and I know I'm going to regret this, but I just couldn?t pass without saying this is one the snobbiest and most vitriolic things I?ve read in a while without being cartoonish.matthew_lane said:Hahahahahahaha, no. I'm sorry, but this one is objectively a big old no. If i have an engineering degree i'm taught how to become an engineer... If you have a womens study degree you are equipped to become a.... woman? A study? a what? I mean women studies is right up there with philosophy as a major... Heck once you've finished a degree in either you only need to learn six more words to be employable: Would you like fries with that.
I hate the picture as well because it?s obviously fake but you are fucking, loathsome.
Frankly womens study should not be a recognised course load in legitimate tertiary institutes of education, fior exactly the same reason Intelligent Design shouldn't be.
