Yeah, everything's gotten even more fucked for the humanities in the last five years.
Have the baby boomers not retired? More fucked as in beyond less jobs and more PHDs?
My gutless weasel admin took a pass on everyone that was up this year, citing the election. I got bumped back onto the carousel for another two years, which is uhhhh....nervous, given the climate. And especially considering I do a decent amount of work about climate.
Would it make a difference if the candidate knows a second language and can apply for more jobs overseas? Does the area of focus matter? Something "hot" vs. something more specialized? And what would be a realistic cutoff in terms of ranking for deciding if it's worth it? Top 15-20 worldwide? Assuming Classics or Philosophy.
Are creative writing MFAs less of a scam if they're funded?
I am grad school studying humanities. The degree adds nicely to my STEM background and I have taken no debt to pay for it. Thus, I do not necessarily agree with the OP's headline, but I see a fraction of truth in the statement that started this thread.
I've been out of school for quite a while. Honestly, my policy is to refresh education on an on-going basis. I might as well get a paper that says "I have done it."You probably need to graduate and get a job before deciding whether it was a good idea or not.
