Subject: Carleton v. Ottawa for Honours in History

a history degree doesn´t do much anyway, so neither university will give you an advantage.

an english degree should probably be done at ottawa, since it´s more prestigious generally, although i would say queen´s or UofT would beat ottawa easily.

don´t listen to the idiot above me... history/english/arts is just as good as any degree. if he doesn´t know what to do with a non-professional degree then he should be at community college, not university.

lol at the person who thinks an arts degree is "just as good". the other guy is right: you can hardly do anything with an arts degree. for english, you can only go into journalism and teaching. if you think you need it to be an author, think again. just like every other art, you don´t need a degree to create art. none of canada´s best photographers have a degree in photography.

history is even worse.

idiot. stfu if you don´t know what you´re talking about.

Sorry dude, I work for a living and know (apparently) much more about the Real World.

Few people work doing exactly what they studied in undergrad. A computer science major might become a project manager, sales rep, or product engineer. A history major might be a marketeer, tech writer, or policy analyst.

There´s only two things you know about a new university grad - a science major can probably think logically, an arts major can probably write.

But think whatever you want... the business world needs coolies like yourself to carry pagers on the weekend. 15 years from now you´ll be bitching about how BAs who started as call centre reps and interns are in management.

I´m not dissing sciences - it´s one of my majors - but you´re in for a shock, buddy. Make sure you don´t tell your manager what you think about his/hers degree.

ok ok (in reply to: Carleton v. Ottawa for Honours in History)
what people fail to realise is that i am not taking an arts based degree because "i am an Artiste! and i shall life my life with a pen in my hand and inscence in my nostrils..." Eff that... i´m taking it cause i was a math wiz kid (boring!) and i hate science, but as most of you know, no one will take me seriously without that paper, regardless of what it says on it... anyways, i was to teach abroad, and you dont even need a degree for that... so basically, this is a fallback
