    Instead of a flat rate, make it so the cost of acquiring a degree is proportional to the chance of you landing a job related to your field of study when you graduate.
    Most schools already have a surcharge for business or engineering classes. I don't know what people actually do in a business degree, but apparently the professors can demand more money to teach about sigmas and synergy.

    So STEM pays more then? Interesting, but I wonder if people would cheap out their college by like double majoring in Latin Grammar.

    Sorry if I was being snitty @Spool32 I just bristle at that sort of thing

    Also I use the skills developed in my LibArts programs all the time in my IT Drone job, and it's helping me climb the ladder faster than the CIS kids. You never know where that stuff will be useful and how it will enhance your skills and workforce.

    Yeah, it's a small extra charge certain majors to even things out, but it doesn't change the funding landscape at all.

    I am kinda glad my government doesn't fund people getting a PhD in anime.

    Just saying... that doesn't seem like a great use of public funding.

    I can think of a number of things your government funds that aren't great uses of it, but as it turns out I am not the dictator of what gets funded or not

    If I managed to get a highly competitive scholarship based on my research and my academic merits, maybe there is value outside of whatever narrow fields of interest individuals decide are "worth" funding

    Or, it turns it that a whole lot of people would like the government to fund their anime studies rather than either paying for it themselves or study something with market value. I bet the competition to get that is fierce!

    I don't mean to sound rude, but if you're going to lol America about your government paying you to get a PhD, I'm going to lol about what you're doing with it.

    you do kinda sound rude telling a guy his field of study isn't worth anything though

    Oh your into sociology? Well we graduated 400000 sociologists last year but most of them are baristas now so maybe we don't pay for you to do that also.

    Or maybe fix the shitty economy and stop treating college degrees as HR filters and stop blaming kids of literally doing what their parents told them to do

    idk

    maybe it's easier to shit on liberal arters

    so big government should dictate what degrees people get instead of allowing market forces to work? ok, adolf stalin

    If the cost becomes too low, universities would encourage English majors to get a fat chemistry degree, instead.

    my Payday 2 experience consist of waiting for a game for a few minutes, dropping, trying again, dropping, deciding fuck it let it run, watching an episode of House with still no game then saying fuck it and doing a solo game only to realize exactly how much fun that was and then exiting because man fuck that noise

    I suspect the primary barrier to abuse there is not so much "is your research in the national interest" but "are you prepared to learn Japanese to an academically rigorous level, actually do the research legwork rather than sit back and mindlessly watch anime", that sort of thing

    because the govt interest really isn't research inasmuch as inculcating soft power, anyway. you want competent people, not muppets.

    the % of people who wind up in these programmes is so low that as far as wasting education budgets on frippery goes, I'd pick #1 sports #2 liberal arts as things to reflect upon first
