Specialized College Degrees

When you think of the generic, stereotypical college student, you probably think of someone who’s a hipster or is just drunk all the time. They just take generic general education classes and have no intention of doing anything with their lives. But these are only one portion of the college population. There are a whole bunch of others that do have ambition and want to make money and accomplish something. These people are getting specialized degrees.        

College students are known for liking things ironically and drinking PBR all the time so the last thing you’d think any of them would do is put in work to head them toward a normal career. However there are large contingents of students in fields like the sciences and engineering who are working tirelessly to get the best grades possible and to make sure that their grades will get them into their graduate school of choice. These aren’t just the normal college students who do work at the last minute; they study and plan and think ahead. They just aren't what you see on TV.

So what kinds of specialized degrees can you get? The ones that require the most work overall would probably be the ones that involve the sciences. You have to take tons of classes that are pure memorization and other ideas that will help you only within the science fields. With these degrees you can either get involved in the medical or research industries. Anything else, and it's probably not worth your time unfortunately. 

Another kind of specialized degree is engineering. You have to take tons of science classes just like the medical majors but also add in a bunch of math classes. Science majors, while their major does depend on math, don’t really have to go that far into the subject. But engineers depend on it. They work tirelessly for four or five years in probably the hardest classes that most colleges have, but really earn what they get in the end. 

Even if your degree seems really hard and not worth it all the time, eventually it will pay off in the working world. Don’t worry, you'll get what you deserve.
