    Anyone can get a degree. But sometimes not everyone follows through with that degree. like...they just got it for the label.
    There are plenty of people who got their degrees, and actually used it and it helped them. Please don't just say degrees are useless. Maybe you're just mad because you didn't get into that psychology field. I don't know. My father got a degree in business, and for many years he's worked as a business consultant. Instead of retiring, (he's 62) he's now doing freelance consulting and is doing rather well for himself. So no kids, degrees are not useless. If you don't go into the field you got your degree in, that's your fault.

    i can relate. my parents didn't finish college and they both were offered to go at no cost to them but i was always compared to my best friend growing up and she was in advance classes and I was in normal college prep classes. She got a 4.0 in honors in hs and I got a 3.5 but she ended up dropping out of college and now I am in honors at the 5th best public university in the u.s. but I worry I will not be able to pay off my student loans. i probably wouldn't have gone to college if it wasn't for all the pressure other people put on me or that I was constantly compared to other people. I have learned a lot but not sure it was worth the price- I could have learned most of it from the internet.

    I am an Engineer and Psychology is NOT a useless profession, specially in today's world. More and more, people don't control their thoughts, their emotions and we see more erratic behaviors then ever before. People are being led by their emotions, instead of being lead by their intellect. People are letting the "Auto-Pilot" mode run their lives and this is when great psychologists come into play. One day as you grow older, you will understand the great tool that you have at your disposal... and you will value the knowledge in psychology that you have. You just need to learn how to apply those principles to change the lives of other people.

    Love you Lilly, but have you even attempted to find a psychology job? Where you could be making hundreds of dollars per session? Not having to worry about demonitization? Not every one wants to be a TVclip star you know. Some people would like to have a real job. Please be considerate when the facts are college and degrees for whatever field you want to go into are more important and valuable that you tube will ever be.

    So I got my bachelors degree in psychology and got a job about 3 months after graduating in 2017 in San Diego, CA.
    I applied
    and was hired as a mental health technician paying @ $15 an hr. I Used my degree.
    Then after 6 months trying to pay bills in Cali I decided to move out of state and went to North Carolina where its cheaper to live and guess what! I used my degree AGAIN as a Research Assistant....starting out @ $15 an hour. Now with both clinical and research experience under my belt Im also applying for another part-time Research Assistant position on HIV/AIDS population analysis with UNC Chapel Hill. If you were really expecting to become a psychologist right out of undergrad you didn't look into the field that much. With a bachelors granted you can't do much with client/patients face to face, however you should have really thought about your end goals while you were in school for those 4 years. If it wasn't your passion to begin with, cool so be it. Before I thought about getting a degree in Psych, I actually was planning on becoming a video editor......but as preferences, I don't like being a freelancer. To me it seemed to unstable with hours and hours of editing random film projects for house productions that didn't fit my ideal goals. If you love what you do you'll find a way, but to say you couldn't use your psych degree for anything is too far
    fetching. "He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”

    Before y'all drop out of school/uni let the teacher in me offer you a piece of advice. Figure out what you want to do before you go to uni. Once you've figured out what job you want THEN look at what level of education you need. A degree is essential if you need it for your dream job. Otherwise don't put yourself through 3+ years of education because your parents want you to or because you think you will seem more clever. As Lily said you can have a great career without a degree. So figure out what you want first.

    Being honestly courious: the people saying that a psychology degree is useless... are anyone of you by any chance happen to be american? In my country, every psychologist I know (and I know quite a few) all have good paying jobs either as self employed therapists or employed researchers at companies. In fact a few months ago I finished my therapy with a recently graduated psychologist who helped deal with my anxiety attacks. She was just starting with a friend in the field an was quite professional and insightful (and cheap given she needed patients), not needing a PhD to do "just fine". She also has a job in a psychiatric ward in a mental hospital (like most of the psychologist who are interested in mental illneses), treating teens with bipolar disorder. In a worst case scenario, they find jobs in education department. Is america neglecting their psychologists? Here all of them have good jobs and earn good money out of them :/

    Can relate so much to this. Haven't seen anyone use their Business Degree for what they actually wanted. I was hoping to get within environment management with a management degree, turns out I needed science. People are now seeing degrees as the ultimate yet forget we're human. I know more about nutrition and health than my 6 years of studying business has ever taught me.

    Psssh, I'm majoring in psychology and I don't think it's useless. When picking a degree, a person has to do a lot of research and make sure they are willing to work and make sacrifices for it. I know a psychology degree will be tough, long, and hard to get employed as u need much education and experience, but willing to put in the effort. And it's an area I'm passionate about.
    By itself, that is simply a BA in psychology, most likely, yeah, is useless. That's why again u need to do research and really think about what you want to do. I know I am def going to go for a Masters or PhD in Psych

    After reading the comments I could feel people’s anxiety through the keyboard so I felt like I needed to clarify something 😂 first off, her experiences won’t define you. She is out of thousands that got a psychology degree and it didn’t work out. She knows ONE person with an English degree and ONE out of law that didn’t work out. So what? That won’t define you. I know a person who did psych and easily got a counseling job after doing her masters. Another went to law school and became a family lawyer making BANK. Honestly it really depends on where you live, the college you went to, and also ur connections. Anyways I wrote this to just tell you that you just need to be smart and research on your own instead of listening to someone making a comedy video and expecting it to be an accurate representation of what your personal future would look like x
