Useless and Worst Degrees For Today’s Ghana Job Market,
We all know that going to college/university in Ghana promises the opportunity to further your education, meet new people and get a taste of independence. The value of a degree is becoming more and more worthless, so make sure the degree you get isn’t just a waste of time and money. You don’t want to be in debt to ”SLT” student loans your entire life or be getting paid the same amount, or even less, than a person who went straight into the workforce with no college experience.
You may have wanted to follow your dreams, but it’s always good to evaluate whether you can survive off these jobs. These are the ten worst degrees in today’s job market;
1. Theatre Arts and Film Technology
Unless you’re a Hollywood heavy hitter, the life of a producer may not be as glamorous as you might picture it in our country.
2. Political Science
Hmm Ghana politics or what? Masa dont waste your time on this. Ask about Asiedu Nketia, Kennedy Agyapong,Koku Ayindoho,Abronye Dc, Obiri Boahen, Hassan Ayariga, etc. Political science? Bross no job for you ooo
3. Criminal justice
Security bosses in this Country will not allow graduates to practice this Job because they believe that their services are useless regardless the state of security in our country.
4. Chemical engineering
This is one of the courses that getting a job in Ghana will be much hectic. Before pursing such a course remember that we are not a developed country like China and Russia.
The best place this job can land you in Ghana is being a secondary teacher. However it’s poor working conditions and peanut salaries will discourage you.
6. Bachelor of Theology and Biblical studies
We all know that preaching is a calling from God, why go to school then?
7. Psychology and Counseling
This is a good course but finding a job in Ghana will take you decades.
8. Sports Science
Most of the graduates from this course end up being gym instructors in Accra and Kumasi. Quick question, with this economy why waste money on gym?
Most graduates from this course say that you need strong connections for you to get a job in this field.
I’m sure microbiology is a rewarding field for many of the people who practice it, but its demand in our country is very low.You also need to know that a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology is insufficient for you to be employed.
