Did anyone really think a theatre study or fine arts degree was in the same league as chemical engineering or computer science.
Because if they did they are not ready to face the harshness of reality.
but thats what this whole argument is
people do not want…
Now that’s a narrow minded load of twoddle!! I had friends that said it was easy to get a first in the arts, well, newsflash, it’s really not, and those are the ones who got thirds and 2(ii) in academic sujects.
Here’s a newsflash, a degree is a degree now, whatever it is, the subject in the modern real world has become quite irrelevant. I know this as I have both a degree and a masters, and it’s hard to find any work. The concept of believing you are more likely to get a job with a science degree over an arts degree is tosh. The only wa to truely get a job with sciences is to go on and get your Phd.
You all seem to forget that before science there was art, the basis for all human communication. Without the arts there are no designers, in either fashion or graphics, who do you think builds the websites, and puts those pretty pictographic instruction manuals together??? I know this as I work in the arts, I do it for a living.
The hard thing about arts degrees..there are no right answers, so it’s down to subjecture.
But in the end, you either do it for the enjoyment, and realise that a degree, in the modern world, is just a degree.
