Here are 10 degrees which most
Kenyans
from their own experience term as
useless
and they regret ever pursuing them.
1. Arts Courses
Even president Yoweri Kaguta
Museveni of
Uganda stirred controversy by
declaring
that “all arts courses are useless
because
they are not seen to be contributing
to
anything in the economy.”
Ranging from drama, music and even
languages arts courses are perceived
by
many to be one of the less serious
degrees
that only require cramming and a bit
of
creativity, anyone else can do that,
right?
2. Hospitality degrees
This is touching anything to do with
catering, hotel management and
such. This
degree is also less marketable
according to
a data released by the joint
admission
board considering it to be less in
demand
in the labor market.
With titles such as Tourism and
Travel
studies it is an assumption by some
people that for you to undertake this
course, you must have “connections”
somewhere.
Graduates who have completed this
course
either end up working in banks or in
other
unrelated positions which only
requires
them to get a degree.
3. Criminal justice
With the rising state of insecurity in
the
country, one would think that
pursuing this
degree would be great advantage.
Sadly security chiefs in the country
Joseph
Ole Lenku and David Kimaiyo will not
need
your services because this degree is
also
considered to be less desirable by
those
who pursued it.
4. Political science
A good number of individuals who
have
pursued this course have not had
the
chance to practice their “political
views”
skills.
The reason is that there are few
“Mutahi
Ngunyi “vacancies available in the
country
so they end up settling for other jobs
that
they did not train for.
5. Mass media
For those who have undertaken the
Media
course, the sad reality is that your
job will
be done by some comedian or by
someone who did pursue a business
course.
Majority of those who pursue media
courses do not end up on screen or
in the
newspapers.
6. Chemical engineering
Now this may sound a little odd
because
an Engineering course is described
as one
of the most marketable and complex
courses.
Some courses are very marketable
and
their jobs may be available in
developed
countries like Russia or America but
not
needed in Kenya.
7. Education
This is a course pursued by most
Kenyans
year in year out but most wish their
decision was reversed if they were
given a
second chance.
This course would land you the job
of a
secondary teacher and we all know
what
all teachers are going through thanks
to
KNUT and KUPPETU sideshows.
Low remuneration and poor working
conditions is one of the reasons
everybody
despises being a teacher.
8. Bachelor of Theology and Biblical
studies
Some famous politician in the
country took
less than year to complete a degree
in
Theology. So it’s that easy right? And
besides the likes of Kanyari are giving
the
course a run for its money meaning
anyone can just wake up and decide
to
become a pastor.
Some claim it is a calling from God
and
with that who needs Theology
classes?
9. Psychology and Counseling
Though it a powerful career as it
involves
impacting people’s lives, most of
graduates who pursued it are not so
lucky
in finding jobs.
10. Sport Science
Individuals who have done this
course do
not find it to be marketable as many
would
think.
Though some of them engage in
sports
profession as gym instructors and
personal trainers, the middle class
economy would struggle to afford this
kind
of lifestyle so less jobs for them.
Which is the most useless degree
you did in
the University?
