You’re doing a PhD in what??

I went back to school a few years ago and–for some inscrutable reason that I’m still trying to work out–did an M.A. in Religion, so this really had me in stitches. (Or was it tears?)

It really is criminal how graduate school programs keep churning out humanities PhDs for whom it will be mathematically impossible to land an academic job. (In which case, why spend a decade getting a PhD?)

    Self enrichment?
    What about the ability to teach outside of the US?
