The Higher Education Bubble

Higher Education Bubble
From: The Best Colleges

(Hat tip to Glenn Reynolds.)

I’ve been quietly encouraging my college-bound seniors to double up on their majors in the hopes that they can pick up some marketable job skills at the same time they’re pursuing their interests in anthropology/literature/history/etc. — and happily enough, many of them are listening to me.

Do you have a real yen to study art history? That’s fine, but make sure you also major in software engineering (or something equally pragmatic).
