5 Most Overrated Degrees
When you’re in college, some of the most frequent advice you will receive is “do what you love”. Aside from many parents, who often (ineffectively) pressure their kids into choosing a degree with a solid career path, most people who give you advice on what degree to pursue will tell you to go after your passion. You may be passionate about the following 5 degrees, but from this list you will see why they are simply overrated.
Psychology may seem like a great degree choice for a few reasons. You can learn about an interesting field – psychology combines science with basically studying why human beings do the strange things that we do. Psychology also provides you with a degree that can help people, by becoming a psychologist, psychiatrist, or social worker.
However, here’s why psychology is overrated: helping people is exhausting. If you major in psychology, it’s likely that you will spend your career helping others for very little pay.
