@David09 - I don’t have any beef with cultural studies myself. I think it’s interesting to take a critical eye at the world we live in, examine its belief systems, why people behave the way they do, or believe what they believe. If you’re majoring in sociology cultural studies are very important.
My only concern is what you can do with that kind of a major. I understand you can aim for a career in media or politics, but I think students should be more focused on specialized skills that are in high demand. To each his own I suppose.
