THE Veeky Forums EDU–CHALLENGE

Hello Veeky Forums
I'm a passionate lurker of the board and I trust your opinion.
I'm 25 years old, I live in EU, in a small town in the southern of Italy. I'm a uni dropout, I attended a no–future course (foreign languages, literatures and cultures).
I'm looking for a new course to attend nowadays, but even if I'm young, I've long history of bad choiches behind me. What course should I choose?
Here's the a form in which you can fill your opinion in:
--------------------------------------------------------
GOD TIER

TOP TIER

MID TIER

LOW TIER

Foreign literatures and cultures
SHIT TIER

Gender and women's studies
--------------------------------------------------------
I'll take care of the infograph in the meanwhile.

tl;dr? Here's the synthesys:
► Complete the form with your opinion1 on courses;
► In the meantime, discuss the opinions1 of the other posters.

1 The more facts/sources/stats you attach, the more your opinion's worth.

Man you're not gonna get shit from here. Don't worry about tiers and shit, first off what do you like to do? Haha now fuck that shit, and go into finance, economics or commerce. Get your stock broker equivalent license or whatever is in your country, work hard, maybe a masters, MBA, or a CFA. Learn the ropes

I'm looking for something "SURE", that's what GOD TIERS's meant to mean. Good income, good effort, low risk.
"Learn the ropes" made me giggle.

I've dual-citizenship (Italy/US), but I'm still a poor-fag and I can't actually get a GOD TIER degree in, let's say, Massachussets.

Most degrees are shit tier if you cant put aside time to get a good gpa, internships, certs and extracurriculars

As a Math major, this is how I see it:

GOD TIER
Mathematics (Applied, Financial, or Mathematical Physics)
Physics (Applied/Pure)
Electrical Engineering

TOP TIER
Aerospace Engineering
Computer Science
Civil/Mech. Engineering
Finance/Financial Engineering
Economics

MID TIER
Philosophy
History
Classics
Political Science (all very interesting topics, but they don't have the best job prospects)

LOW TIER
Medicine (who's gonna bust his ass 9-12 years in school, just so he can do the same fucking thing every single day?)
Anything else not listed

SHIT TIER
Psychology
Gender Studies
African American Studies

But he's right.

i'm 23 and i'm attending civil engineering at the Politecnico di Torino. Go for computer science or computer engineering. After 3 years you can have a guaranteed job (at least if you graduate here in Turin)

placing all of the non-finance business degrees in Low

Lol, retard. Those are the actual mid.

Also Philosophy, History, and Classics in mid? LOL

LOW TIER
Medicine (who's gonna bust his ass 9-12 years in school, just so he can do the same fucking thing every single day?)

You've obviously never worked in science or engineering.

As a Math major, you don't know how math works. If I follow your advice, I'll be hobo 2 days after my degree.
This list isn't about what you are into or what you are into / passionate about / interested in, but it IS about your
ITT: EMPLOYABILITY when you get the X or Y degree.
That's Veeky Forums, folk, you know making green paper flow, we aren't seeking hippy advices like "follow your heart", that doesn't magically land money on your desk. Medicine does (and you put that in Low Tier. HOW CAN I TRUST YOU LITTLE BITCH?
But that
(all very interesting topics, but they don't have the best job prospects)
explains everything.

@FastChef
Caro torinese, non comprendo le tue ragioni. Se da una parte la tua facoltà è considerata una merda (conosco molti ingegneri laureati e molti altri che studiano, e mi hanno detto che la vostra facoltà è una specie di facoltà di ingegneria per minorati mentali), so anche che in proporzione i laureati in ingegneria hanno accesso a posti discreti (in termini di classifica "TOP TIER") perché se da una parte il guadagno è buono/decente, dall'altra parte:
1. Pochi di voi lavoreranno nel loro campo - 2. Se tuo papà ha lo studio, tutto è più facile
3. C'è un albo professionale che richiede un'iscrizione ($$$)
Per quanto riguarda ciò che dice l'altro user "TUTTI I CORSI SONO BUONI SE...", semplicemente NON CORRISPONDE AL VERO. Prendi una laurea in lettere classiche e prova a cercare un impiego che non sia nel fare pompini.
Dall'altra parte, grazie per il consiglio Informatica e Ingegneria Informatica possono entrare in lista, ma in che posizione?

@CodeBuns
Philosophy/History/Classics are kneepads degrees. You can only work as a waiter or as a prostitute, or both. If you are a guy, you just need to get yourself a rope and an hero. That's it.

If you read yourself carefully you can see a joke about dead patients in the background, don't you?

@Sir_Gallonhead
You are right, but where's your list?

There are much, much better ways to get to a high salary than Medicine.

Do Medicine if you've got a passion for "saving lives", but don't do it if you're in it for the dosh.

If you want money, study Financial or Applied Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Aerospace Engineering.

Dosh's my primary purpose. I want to be a money making cash machine man. Is computer science a thing? Is it that GOD TIER?

Ignoramus

@PurpleCharger
Computer Science is good, but being taken over by Pajeets.

If you really want to make a lot of dosh, go for Mathematics, do a PhD in Financial Mathematics with a dissertation title like "The Application of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations in the Pricing of Credit Default Swaps on Synthetic CDOs".

Then work as a strategist for Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley or any of the other large banks.

This guy is true. But look at the skills level you need in mathematics for doing something like that...
