Someone that goes into a hard major such as
science, math, engineering, computer science etc ... is not going to have a hard time finding a job or getting to the next level.
if you go into the soft majors like socialolgy or liberal arts or women studies or some other off beat path degree then yea you are going to have a hard time landing a job and making good money.
they really need to look at student majors instead of just general based assumptions.
there are some degree's that are going to pay off more than others.
you need a lot of real world experience in photography in order to make it in that business.
it is a high risk high reward type of situation but it can pay off if you put in the work.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
College will not pay for everyone if they go for a degree that is not in demand. There isn't a high demand for a philosophy major compared to other degrees.
Had a friend who went for a Masters in History but he paid for it on his own without the federal student loan program.
i have seen some of those high end camera's they have more options and more settings than i even care to know about or how to operate.
however someone with a photography degree would or should know how to use them.
