I need not be "doing the research and seeign waht" I can find. Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell have both produced excellent essays here about useless and fraudulent degrees and universities. However, let us take a look at the US Census : http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/cats/education.html Take a look at publication 302. It tells you what degrees people earned up to the year 2008 (that was a far as the study extended, so numbers may be off a bit now.) Take a look at the number of degrees in, oh, visual and performing arts, liberal arts, theology/philosophy, parks and rec (I wish I was joking), social sciences and history to name a few. Compare that to physical sciences, engineering, math, medical, and business.
