I'm glad I read your explanation. Yes, you are right those degrees are only good to teach the subject. On the other hand, by graduating you've proven that you have acquired some valuable skills: You can read and write. You can compete and at least graduate. You stick to a task long enough to complete it with a passing grade. You can research material and write a report on what you learned that uses good grammar. When a national study was done as to why a person interviewed wasn't hired the general reasons were inability to do simple math, write so that one could understand what was being said, identify that there was a problem, solve simple problems and ask for advice. College degrees, no matter the subject at least should show that a person has those skills. Many companies want to teach a new employee how they want the job done anyway.
Because it's not politically correct to acknowledge that job performance is tied directly to IQ, so the bosses have to have some screening device, which is basically that if you are so dumb as to be so patient as to graduate, then you can be manipulated, because the people with brains (Bill Gates) won't stick around for such foolishness, they will be out in the world actually doing things.
thats what i thinking,
Because it's expected of us to do just that. If you don't, you're automatically thought of as a failure, or "less than".
For me, it was just about finishing something.
Because it was worth it.
