This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the most useless college major?

Steve delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Connie and MC-B:

Any major that involves a particular gender or ethnic group. These classes amount to indoctrination and prepare you only to spread propaganda yourself.


MC-B concurs in the result, joined by David:

_____-American Studies. Even if you’re going to work with that group in the future, a good deal of the information is presented from the perspective of someone who hasn’t.


Djere concurs in the result, joined by David:

Women’s Studies. I thought cooking, cleaning, laundry, and baby-making was genetic! Who needs college for that?


Chloe dissents, joined by Erin:

Liberal Arts – it’s a non-word! You don’t major in anything! You come away with debt and a hangover! You fool!


Tom dissents, joined by Chloe:

An undergraduate degree in Philosophy leaves one well-equipped only to ponder the futility of majoring in Philosophy.


Mike dissents, joined by Job:

Outdoor rec–everyone knows how to have normal fun, and everyone who knows how to have specialized fun is already an outdoor rec major looking for a job.


Josh dissents:

I have to go with art, since I can’t see much difference between a starving artist and a slightly more knowledgeable starving artist, besides all the tuition debt.

Next week: What was the most effective ad campaign ever?
