Many years ago, my retired-AF-MSgt dad, who only had a GED, worked at an employment agency for a while in California. He told me even then: anyone with “-ology” in their degree simply was not hire-able.
I dunno - geology majors are pretty hot right now.

Not even Molecular Biology?
When I was looking at grad schools, the best advice I got was: if they aren’t paying, you shouldn’t be going. I think that doesn’t hold for MBAs/law school or med school, of course, but for Ph.D programs, it’s a good rule of thumb.
Idiots going into debt for a Ph.D in Wymyn’s Studies have only themselves to blame.
You can probably say the same thing about degree names containing the word “studies”.
I think what your Dad meant was people with “sociology” degrees are not hire-able.
