When I was in college, they had a place in the student union where you could look up various degrees and it would tell you the most likely jobs you could get with each degree and what they paid and it also gave you a pretty good overview of your earning potential with that degree. Of course today you can do that much easier with the internet. I have to wonder if this woman EVER took 10 minutes to research what her degree would actually be worth. Should we make this mandatory for all college students once they pick a degree.

That would be smart. Have an advisor remind them every course enrollment period as well in case they weren't paying attention.

There should be a list of approved degrees that qualify for loans. You shouldn't be allowed to borrow money to get a degree that won't allow you to get a job so you can pay back the loan. That is the dumbest shit ever.

If you've got the cash to pay for a fine arts degree or a Masters in women's arts history, I'm all about ya. If ya don't, and you borrow money to pay for your worthless degree, and you're making less than minimum wage, then you're stupid and you're getting what you deserve.

That is actually illegal now. It would be a Title IX violation.

In a burnin' ring of fire.
I guess it all depends on the person. My oldest daughter is 24 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, she is going into her second year of a pretty good job with insurance and other benefits. She has OSU faculty trying to get her to go get her Masters so she can join the faculty here. She did get a small student loan one semester but I'm pretty sure she has already paid it off, or at least is very close. In other words she has the same degree as the chick in the picture yet has a job, with options for others, is not in debt and not on foodstamps. One thing I do know about my daughter that I don't know about the girl in the picture, my daughter is a damn hard worker with a great work ethic, outgoing personality and ability to listen to what she is told.

Of course it depends on the person, which is why I asked Cim what she was. She's an idiot. There's no reason why she can't go out and find a job, particularly in the current economy. She doesn't want to. She thinks the jobs that are available to her are beneath her.

Yep. You cannot tell a student what they can make with the degree they seek. It would be "undo influence". If a pre-pharm student, who is going to make $100k on graduation, decides to change to paleo-feminist studies where they will make minimum wage on graduation, as their pre-pharm adviser I cannot point out to them the difference. Our Financial Services cannot point out to them that they won't be able to service their student loan debt. The only thing Financial Services can really do is tell them how much they can borrow.
