Kansas Beats Kentucky: $139,000 vs. $127,000 for a Degree in Gender Studies By Thomas Cloud April 2, 2012
(CNSNews.com) - You can spend four years earning a degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Kansas or a degree in "Gender and Women's Studies" at the University of Kentucky.
But the degree will cost you more at Kansas if you are an out-of-state student that it will at Kentucky.
At Kansas, according to the College Board, tuition plus room and board is currently $21,446 per year for an in-state student and $34,832 for an out-of-state student.
At Kentucky, it's $22,142 for an in-state student and $31,754 for an out-of-state student.
That works out to a cool $139,328 for an out-of-state student to earn an undergraduate degree in gender studies at Kansas versus just $127,016 for an out-of-state student at Kentucky. That's assuming the tuition and board and room costs don't increase--and the student finishes in four years.
Why spend so much time and money earning a college degree in gender studies?

4 years to study gender? There might be some truth to that. In W Hollywood, no one knows who is a he or she.
The only semi-successful person with a degree in Gender Studies is Keith Olbermann.

(The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.)
Obviously they will have to go on for a Master’s Degree. I would imagine they could be a Professor somewhere. Maybe a Professor at the university they receive to degree to students who are taking the major. It is always possible. My Bachelor’s Degree is in Education and I have an MBA and I only use the MBA for work. I think it all depends on what the ultimate degree would be. I think if students are going for a Master’s Degree, they should get a liberal arts degree to see what they want to really do in life.

(A moral principled Christian with character is the frontrunner! Congrats Santorum!)
Courses offered in this myth-bustingl major at Kansas include but are not limited to: -- Gender and Sexuality in Cyberspace where Students learn how the Internet helps produce new and alternative modes of expressing and experiencing sexuality and how sexual desires, fantasies, and identities are articulated in this cyberspace, according to the schools web site.
Sounds like a class that teaches you how to surf the net for porn.
