Hahaha alright man if you're talking about salary, high pay and all that is out of context cos even I don't question my colleagues and the people there about their pay. In terms of employability yes, it is there, there is a good chance you can get hired from this sector. Salary increments are also determined by your job performance grading and the experience as well. However I admit that what you said it's true, writing skills alone will not get you the job, so I slipped my mind on that one. My main point is, people from arts and social sciences do have their own special skill sets that is needed by many industries so we shouldn't downplay their capabilities too alright. Spread peace alright, no point looking down on different degrees when we ourselves don't even know much about the job industry out there.


May I know which areas of expertise do the government sector or which job positions do they require? And are they able to land in higher positions and higher pay in gov't sector due to their flair in writing? I guess you have to explicit say which course in the Arts and Social Sci, as different course teaches different stuffs. Not all courses are writing based courses, like Economics, it is very mathematical based in uni. Because I don't believe just good writing skills alone can land you in a very high position, without a "actual" strength or expertise. Just like engineering students are equipped with engineering skills, accountancy students have a set of accounting skills. Just merely writing skills is not a specialised set of skills to enable you far.,

All the fields have their pros and cons. To say one is "useless" is a sweeping statement. Look at the NUS pharmacy. It's a straight A course but many pharmacy graduates are struggling.

Law also is oversaturated. Engineers no need to say, FT's are being brought in droves. Accountancy is facing threat of automation and oversaturation too, not to mention the work life that kills you.

Business is too general of a degree etc. It's really how one uses university to springboard into the working life. I don't see how productive it is to be bashing on an entire faculty when it encompasses many areas of study.

I can say engineer is useless since can just bring in FT's who are cheaper, better, faster but I'm not considering the different engineering fields am I like comp engineering, civil engineering, EEE and so on.
Okay then. Allow me to rephrase my statement.
Art degrees are the most useless for employment among all other fields.
Does that make you feel better?

Hey.. Everyone's struggles are different. Do respect one another. Even if one person did something bad to you, repay them with kindness and not hate. That way, the world would be a better place

Whatever we've been through, good or bad, there are always a reason behind it. So as good friends in this forum, let's just support one another okay? It's okay to voice out opinions but do so nicely and appropriately.

She wants to major in that field due to her passion then so be it. We will just wish her all the best Who knows she will work as an english teacher? An author? A tuition teacher? There is still life ahead no matter what major you are in. It is up to ourselves to control our life and choose our path. Who knows one day due to her passion and hard work, she ends up being our boss? Have a blessed day everyone.
