Edit. I think I was probably just over-reacting.
But yeah, some degrees are great, some not so much.
There are a lot of jobs, and not just jobs but also employers, who simply will not even bother reading your CV if you haven’t got a degree. But some will.
For me the bottom line is, a decent degree from a reputable establishment cannot possibly harm your career. There isn’t really a downside to it – as long as it is a good, relevant degree.
