Wrong decisions?

Doctoral end

An interesting article about Ph.D. degrees and some analysis about it. It scares me a little bit, it contains some things that I already knew, others I just realized now. And again, more information that supports that academia is the same as politics. I’m more afraid than before… 😕

Some quotes that marked me:

You know you are a graduate student, goes one quip, when your office is better decorated than your home and you have a favourite flavour of instant noodle.

PhDs in maths and computing, social sciences and languages earn no more than those with master’s degrees.

Monica Harris, a professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky, is a rare exception. She believes that too many PhDs are being produced, and has stopped admitting them.
