    Flopsy is close, but take out Harvard Law and throw in U of Chicago Econ if you just want to stick with undergrad.

    Philosophy majors who want decent jobs can get them more easily than many other majors, and a well trained art history major has visual analytic skills that few other majors acquire (film, maybe a few more). For example, look at law schools- one of the most popular major was philosophy. From there, most go into law.

    Yea, I know. I just felt the need to comment on the myth that there are 'worthless' degrees. The degree does not make the person.

    U of Chic econ more marketable than Harvard econ? I think the weight of the Harvard name does something for you in this situation, but I could be wrong. *shrug*
