Why would I spent $150k to learn about something that has absolutely no application to what I want to do or really anything at all. Whilst I may not directly use what I learn from my statistics degree in my future jobs getting a 1st in my course will prove to employers that I'm smart and logical as fuck. i'm not going to spend that much money so I can learn about some french poem, whatever prose is or some painting some guy made in the 1500s, that's not going to get me an internship in IB or even accounting at a big 4 firm, it'll get me into debt and give me something to talk to girls who went to liberal arts colleges about. I understand if you're rich enough to not care about $23k a year in fees then go study whatever you want for personal enjoyment, i'd be at CSM making sickening sculptures if what I studied didn't matter, but why "should" someone study art history, language or literature? I can wikipedia that shit, I know a girl at Warick doing art history what employer is going to give a fuck if she knows what style some painting is.
