Revision as of 22:29, 20 March 2013

The worst college majors are fields of study that leave the student with relatively few job opportunities and often a distorted or ultra-liberal view of the world. Students incur an average debt in excess of $25,000 for attending college, and these college majors can leave such students without the ability to pay off their loans, which are typically not dischargeable in bankruptcy. As a result of poor job prospects, students in the worst college majors may resort to being career students.

Adding insult to injury, liberal colleges have begun charging students more if they decline one of the Worst College Majors, and study something of value instead.[1]

"Irrespective of the specific title of the course, the 'magic' in the fiction is being analyzed by applying concepts of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. This honors course creatively packages scientific principles in a contemporary way that will interest today's students," Gira said.
