PARENTS: 36 WORTHLESS College Courses Your Kids Are WASTING Your $$$ On

Published on May 16, 2016

Higher education in America has undergone a huge transformation since its early days. I think we could all agree that our Founders would screech at what Universities are offering their students. Let’s take a look at some of the most worthless courses that your child could be taking on your dime:

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.

Adding insult to injury, many public colleges have begun charging students more if they decline one of the Worst College Majors, and study something of value instead.[1] Incidentally, a study by USA Todayand the non-profit Education Sector showed that 514 colleges are more likely to produce defaults in student loans than graduates.[2]

In addition, college matters less and less to employers. The number of degree-less hires is trending way up at Google.[3] President of the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy wrote in the Wall Street Journal, “Many liberal-arts graduates, even from the best schools, aren’t getting jobs in part because they didn’t learn much in school.”[4]

In addition to having horrible majors, students are also offered these horrible courses:
