Here are the real degree tiers. Pro-tip: anything that isn't actively stigmatized will still get you a non-specialized job that calls for a degree, making all bachelor's degrees effectively low-tier at worst on this scale save the ones with bad reputations.

The rest is based on a combination of salaries, employability, and social prestige.

>>1071587

International relations is one of 9 degrees most likely to put you at a six figure income. It also requires you to be multi-lingual and coursework typically nets you international contacts.

Mathematics has niche options available to it, plus it has intellectual credibility. It's the automatic in that any degree has plus extra credibility with some specialized routes.

Also, I should add that a degree from a prestigious university, particularly an Ivy League, bumps your degree tier up one, maybe two categories. An average state university keeps all tiers the same. Podunk university knocks down a level. I should probably post an edit with that tacked on.

The way I got internships was meeting people at graduate events then adding them on LinkedIn. Appeal to their egos as much as you can and suck up to get an internship.

There are always business networking events going on.

I assume that's 45k GBP, right? Not USD?

I'm currently a Maths zoo-keeper at an FE college for 23.2k, but I'm only on 4-day/week (full time would be 29k). I get plenty of time to tutor on my 3-day weekends and work on personal projects.

My original plan to get qualified and work in Dubai backfired by the way, although I'm getting a PGCE at the end of this year, most of those positions require a Native English Speaker, which I am not.

I'm currently applying to Finance MSc courses for a career switch, but I'm kinda fucked as I have no intern-ships. Basically what >>1072027 said, but I willingly walked my self into the graveyard for the unambitious, and I hate it. It is not how I imagined it....

>2k-4k GBP (depends on accommodation)
>Paid medical care.

Anyway, how do you think your experience would be viewed by a financial firms? (asking for myself)

I'm an Economics and IR double major, and a bunch of people in my IR were fucking retards who barely knew about important events that were currently occurring.

I would definitely say I was one of the better students in my classes, so I guess this means I have a good chance of making 6 figs?
>>
>>1071931

IS major here its actually pretty legit if your schools IS curriculum isn't shit (most are). It teaches you IT and CS courses and apply those skills to an actual business or corporation. And not banking on some bullshit start up that most likely that will fail within the usual 3 to 5 years.

Plus it's usually in the business school, so yiu have to interact with other people and do group projects which makes you more if an extrovert with actual school compared to some idiot football player that takes business mgt who will most likely be an account exec or HR rep.

Tldr, be social, do personal projects, and don't be edgy/sperg out and you should at least snag a decent job

Every single L.A. Graduate I know wishes they'd have specialized because they are not only not great at anything specific, they aren't really good at anything else otherwise

You should specify graduate/undergraduate better

MBA in Econ has the highest salary ceiling of any degree
Physics is über respectable with a masters because you gotta be able to do fluid mechanics and otherwise be brilliant
Math at BA+ is like resume porn for a lot of jobs
A 2 year Hospitality degree has one of the highest salary ceilings of any 2 year degree making it have the lowest P/E ratio of anything ever

Higher Education has a lot of prestige because you build bonds with students and can influence the rest of their lives

You gotta be more specific and scientific with your approach because this is just pitiful meanderings

I'm going into Information Systems this year, and GIS is one of the specializations they offer. It looks like one of the cooler things you can do within the field (so in my books at least good tier, maybe top tier if you end up in a position doing it, maybe even managing large projects) but I've searched for jobs that use it and it seems more niche than say business analysis, which seems to have more job openings but looks less interesting and less tangible. This is just based on my cursory investigations though.

>>1075346

>I suck at sciences and math and I like economics, writing, and art. I also have shit work ethic and a bad memory

It could be a "meme degree", depending on which university you study at (where I am the management/marketing people are housed in the Economics department so they're taken at least somewhat seriously) but in any case if you're being honest about your lack of work ethic, mathematics and bad memory it's not like going into the sciences or engineering would be the wisest decision in the world. There's plenty of people who get management degrees and do well, but the "meme" aspect of it is that you'll have to rely on experience in the workforce and working your way up PLUS the degree to leverage your employability, not solely the degree like some engineering/tech students can (in some cases)

Law school is being grossly overrated here. "God tier"? Hell no.

The legal job market in the US is utterly saturated, and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. The only context in which a JD is "God tier" is if it comes from an Ivy League school, or if you graduate at the top of your class from a school in the next tier down.

I believe a Bachelor's in Engineering is now more valuable than a JD from the same institution, assuming the same class ranking. The harsh reality is that anyone of normal intelligence can get through law school, but the math and science required for an engineering degree will weed out anyone who is not above average in intelligence and work ethic.
>>
Honestly god tier is being an entrepreneur. Don't like your job? Don't be in the workforce, make you're own damn job. Countries like Morocco and Algeria and shit have a shit ton of young people and literally no jobs for them so they're just like "fuck it, we're not employing you.

>>1081485
Not from the US

Can it compete with Ivy league?
As in, can someone from that school with good marks get the same job as someone from Winconsin-Madison with good marks?

If the answer is yes, then sure, if the answer is no then you are wasting your time

Do your grades during your first year matter? I fucked up this year, although I'll pass. Do employers and grad programs look at your first year grades?

Even a law degree from a shit school gives you the potential to make more than an engineer on average.

You could live in your fucking house taking cases from the court and make at least 100k a year (if you wanted to be on your own and do a lot of work).

Doing family law cases alone would give you a large enough client list to make a lot of money.

Law = business. What you make is dependent on what you bring in unless you get an associate job at a large firm.

Then your set on salary with benefits until you make partner.

I'm terrified considering my skills either fall into shit tier arts, which I really am not even good at.
And then only mid tier linguistics.
Guess I'm a total idiot in regards to hard logic, math or overall scientific things.
The furthest I can go is a joke of philosohpy or maybe psychology and mentioned linguistics.
Should I just kill myself /biz/ ?

most employers only care about overall gpa
some may care about grades you received in specific classes relevant to the job

Even if your work a shitty 9-to-5 job as a cs undergrad in my country ou make 3k net a month and get a car, laptop, etc. from your shitty company.

What about grad schools?
How hard is it to get accepted to a master's or PhD program in a good uni (UMich, NYU, etc)
What do they look at on your resume/record

>>1073148
Analyst and consultency positions. Be ready to fucking cold call though.

Sales guy here.

This guy is 85% right. You need to also be ready to put in some serious time weiting resumes. Just make sure you can pay attention to the needs of each potential employer.

If you can get accepted to grad school they don't give a fuck about GPA, they know you're not retarded
A 3.5+ generally means you're intelligent enough to get in, assuming you do well on all the exams/tests relevant to your field, a 3.8+ is probably more likely to get you accepted if you're in a specialized field (like psychology or something)
What you really need is experience in the field

Double majoring in Molecular/Cell Biology (focus on genetic engineering) and English.

Good or bad?

what exactly is work with this degree? IT infrastructure engineer for example?

i wanna know what this work i would be getting into with this degree
>>
>>1084363
Depends on the company you work for.

I have a business IS degree. My last job, I watched the fifa world cup at my desk. My current job, I'm getting clients constantly asking me for updates and never really feeling accomplished in what I do because there's just no time to get all the colossal work finished.

It's ridiculously varied, but that also means if you don't like it, it's not hard to hop over to something else, is what he means

Never find my degree on these charts

Currently a 4th achieving a degree in cognitive science with a focus on human computer interaction.

I play with occluses all day in the lab I'm working at.

>>1082853
This is true. Three years into work - 90k a year, 12% annual bonus, mac probook that I take home for work ( can't browse 4chan on it), discounts through the company, free food.

Being an SDE is lucrative.
>>
>>1084374
ok then... uh after graduating how did you know what to apply for? or get into the work itself?
>>
>>1084420
>how did you know what to apply for?
I didn't. I was just willing to work for anyone that would have me.

It's the same as getting a normal job.
toss out hundreds of applications for anything remotely computer related and after 60% rejections, 30% failed interviews, and 9% beat out by competition, you get hired.

Lying is not OK on a resume, but bend the truth as much as humanly possible. You're a salesman trying to get the recruiter to "buy" your skills for that paycheck.

The furthest I can go is a joke of philosohpy

If you're not rational enough to process hard logic, then philosophy is certainly not for you.

I studied PPE and philosophy is one of the hardest subjects overall (not just about memorizing 100 things in a row, but about applying the knowledge you have) but one with the least direct employment applications.

So, if you're shit with science or arguing causation then philosophy is the antithesis of what you're looking for. I'd compare to to English Lit but rather than repeating what you've read, it's analyzing the authors ideas in reference to the others. Lots of reading, lots of subjectivity and unless you're already consumed by it, then it's not worth it.

How about political philosophy? Does this branch have more direct employment opportunities?
