    ??? Was that meant to be added to the list? If so, I'd disagree- you can make a ton of money doing this kind of stuff, whether or not it actually has any real use.

    They are wrong about music therpy. My mom is a special ed teacher and they have a music therapist come in and play music for the kids. They make a shit load of money for basically no work.

    Well, the difference is studying it compared to majoring in it. I can study something that I like in the library or on the net, it isn't necessery to pay a shitload of money for getting a degree....

    I tend to think that all the majors on this list are useful. For instance:

    Art History -
    People take art historians for granted, however they go scrambling to them to preserve and record some of the greatest achievements of the human species.

    Religion -
    No, I'm not religious. However, even as "devout atheist" I have considered the study of religion as a career. Understanding religion is just as important as understanding anything that has that big of an impact on the world.

    Philosophy -
    Many of the biggest achievers in the world today are philosophy majors; not because they spend their lives puzzling over metaphysics but because they CAN think.

    So I think that, while most of these fields stray from the normal view of productivity, they are still very useful.
