If I was just starting out today, I would not go to college but would get training online, on the job, and through apprenticeships and internships. It doesn’t make sense to go in hock five or six figures and have a degree that is near-worthless in psychology, political science, sociology, communications, gender studies, black studies, brown studies, ad nauseum. I got an engineering degree from UCLA in 1971 and it got me regular work for 30 years, but after a couple of layoffs, it was evident that the credential had become obsolete and I had to “re-invent myself” for the jobs that were available. Many people I knew kept trying to sell their degrees past the expiration date - they wanted a job with “benefits” that were rapidly going away. Some are still trying.
