21 Degree Subjects and Why They Suck

BEN KENNEDY reveals why every single one of your degrees is shit, despite knowing absolutely nothing about most of them.

Archaeology: The only good things about it are Lara Croft and Jurassic Park and neither of those exist.

Economics: nobody actually knows what this is.

French: too French.

Music: students sit around all day writing guitar ballads about their feelings.

Physics: none of them wash and they all look like this.

Architecture: spend seven years doodling then work in a chip shop? No thanks.

Politics: you get beaten if you’re not a Tory.

Psychology: you don’t actually learn how to hypnotise people. Bloody pointless.


Philosophy: Paying to think about thinking, nice. Mystic Meg’s got it covered.

Maths: by the time you graduate, you’ll still be shitter than an Excel spreadsheet.

Viking Studies: even the women have beards.

Nutrition: they all drink their own piss and believe in the healing power of crystals.

Management: spend three years learning how to use a photocopier and a hole punch.

Healthcare Science: get regularly kicked in the crotch by Medicine students.

Agriculture: the campus is somewhere in East Botswana.

Zoology: Rolf Harris.

Medicine: too many anus inspections.

Geology: highest suicide rate of any subject.

Computer Science: students lose the ability to do anything unless it’s got a screen and a keyboard grafted onto it.

Sociology: universally hated by the student populace (in a poll of over 27,000 people, 67% of them said they ‘hate’ sociology).

Art History: everyone talks like Princess Anne and drives a Bentley.
