Have you ever considered the most useless college degrees in India's 110+ billion dollar Education industry? - In this article, you will get a clear idea about some of the career options which has low value in the market. We have analyzed many students careers and also did research based on upcoming career trends. Moreover, we will also evaluate such degrees based on some factors. These factors include the number of job vacancies, ease of doing, future scope, other alternatives, salary, and location-wise availability.

As we talk about our Indian Education system, college degrees play a pivotal role in creating one's professional career. To enroll in a good course, one should first understand the actual work and demand of the course. After that one should also consider his/her interest. Based on these one should decide on a career.

Now we talk about some of the factors which will help us in understanding the scope of any degree. We will evaluate every factor on a scale of points 10.

  • Nos. of Job vacancies - The nos of job openings in India. Especially for newly graduated candidates.
  • Ease of Doing - We can not calculate ease of doing directly but we can consider one point is that if any work is easy can be replaced by computer systems or there is an insufficient economic market for it, then it has a good number of "ease of doing".
  • Future scope - If any work has good demand today. But in the future, if its demand is going to become less, then it would be a negative factor for one's degree.
  • Pay Scale - after learning any skill and gaining any degree, its main purpose is to earn money. If we can not earn a good pay scale. Then it would simply mean that it is not worth doing (Note: from the money point of view).
  • Location-wise Availability - We should also check the fact that certain demand for a degree is there in major cities like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, etc.

1) B. com

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 7
  • Ease of doing: 8 (not so good)
  • Future Scope: 4
  • Pay Scale : 3
  • Location: 6

B. com is done after pursuing a commerce stream. This field had a huge demand in the past few years. But due to many specialized courses offered in the field of finance, accounting, insurance services & banking in these years. There is a huge crunch of payscale and job openings for B. com graduate students.

2) library Science

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 4
  • Ease of doing: 7 (not so good)
  • Future Scope : 3
  • Pay Scale : 3
  • Location : 3

Library science was a very good career option at one point in time. But after the coming of online bookstores and forums. Many readers nowadays are shifting from offline learning to online. That's why the demand for library science students is declining nowadays.

3) Culinary arts

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 4
  • Ease of doing: 6 (average)
  • Future Scope: 7
  • Pay Scale : 3
  • Location : 3

A culinary arts degree is not easy to get. Many fewer universities (especially in India) are offering this degree. After doing this course, the payscale offers very low remuneration . Even many restauranteurs do not opt for culinary artists in India.

4) Study of Anthropology and Archaeology

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 4
  • Ease of doing: 4 (good)
  • Future Scope: 7
  • Pay Scale : 3
  • Location: 2

Anthropology is the study of Human behavior, society, culture, and tradition. While in Archaeology, you study ancient art, sculptures, drawings, history, and craft. As this field has a low amount of job opportunities, one should not pursue it as his/ her career.

5) Music

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 7
  • Ease of doing : 3 (good)
  • Future Scope: 7
  • Pay Scale: 6
  • Location: 6

As we can see all five factors have a good rating. But the main problem with the music degree is that: It only allows one to understand and gain knowledge about different instruments. But to be a good Musician one should practice music and should have real-life skills for a successful career in it.

6) Performing Arts / Theatre Arts

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 6
  • Ease of doing: 4 (good)
  • Future Scope: 7
  • Pay Scale: 5
  • Location : 3

Many upcoming budding actors think of pursuing a degree in Theatre arts. But in reality one should have actual acting talent and skill to become a successful actor. To get a degree that taught the same tactics to all students, one should have his / her style mark to become a huge success in the industry. And if you're thinking by just getting a degree will land you good acting proposals, then you're probably dreaming.

7) Travel and tourism

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 4
  • Ease of doing: 8 (bad)
  • Future Scope: 5
  • Pay Scale: 5
  • Location : 3

Opting for a degree in travel and tourism may seem like an ideal option for those who wish to explore the world and travel to different destinations as part of their job. However, the truth is that the current job market presents challenges that make it difficult to find suitable and well-paying positions in this field. While the allure of traveling to various parts of the globe is certainly appealing, it's important to be realistic about the potential job prospects that come with this degree.

8) Political Sciences

  • Nos. of job opportunities: 4
  • Ease of doing: 9 (bad)
  • Future Scope: 5
  • Pay Scale: 5
  • Location : 6

It is the subject in which a student learns about the policies and hirerchy of the governmental system of India. Even after studying such field the chances of getting a job is very much difficult as most polictical parties choose politicians based on their public presence and work. Even for the job of political analyst one needs to have an actual understanding of the field rather than a degree.

I hope that this article has helped you in understanding the career trends and understanding the right career choice for your future endeavors. However, if you genuinely love any of these subjects then you must hard work and gain knowledge in any of the above. Even there are many successful people in such fields. But if you are just considering from the point of view of just earning a good and becoming successful then it is a hard nut to crack.

Best of Luck with your Career.
